During his military career, Dr. McGrail served in multiple leadership roles, in both hospital and operational units, across the U.S., Central America, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. His service included both combat and non-combat deployments with significant experience in the provision of healthcare in austere environments, medical training, and health sector development.
Dr. McGrail is a graduate of the University of Maryland and the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. He completed a family medicine residency, a behavioral health fellowship, and is board certified in both family medicine and addiction medicine.
