  • The MDC is closed to students.  Midshipmen in the hall are to use email and telephone for questions and appointment scheduling rather than coming to MDC. 

  • No in-person appointments

  • Midshipmen with a SCHEDULED appointment:
    • We will email Midshipmen with existing appointments to determine if they wish to have an appointment while away from Bancroft Hall, and will determine contact information, method, and times with their provider.

  • Students requesting NEW appointments (new to MDC, no previous appointments):
    • Call or email MDC during business hours (0730-1530).  However, with staff potentially working remotely, MDC may not be always manned, MDC email is the preferred method of communication and will be checked frequently.

  • We will review request and connect client with appropriate resources, which may include:
    • Telehealth intake appointment
    • Referral to company/duty chaplain
    • Other resources as appropriate

Helping Midshipmen meet life's challenges with success 

The Midshipmen Development Center (MDC) is open to Midshipmen from 0730-1600 Monday to Friday, except Federal Holidays.  Midshipmen should be in uniform of the day when visiting MDC.

The Midshipmen Development Center exists to promote and enhance the adjustment, well-being, and professional development of Midshipmen through psychological and nutritional counseling services to Midshipmen, and through consultation and training to USNA Faculty and Staff responsible for Midshipman development, while respecting diversity of gender, race, sexual orientation and culture.

A wide variety of training, educational, and clinical services are provided to the Midshipmen, Faculty, and Staff to support the mission of the Naval Academy and to respond to the individual needs and goals of our diverse Midshipmen population.

The Midshipmen Development Center is a non-medical facility, and the information obtained by the MDC does not go into a Midshipman's medical record.
