Military to Medicine's mission is three-fold: to provide accurate assessment of an individual's skills, interests and abilities as a foundation for career selection and success; to provide access to targeted training and education that improves employment and career outcomes; and to provide access to meaningful careers. As the demand for training and education increases with work requirements, Military to Medicine® provides both guidance and entry-level training opportunities to today's military and veteran families. As interest in our programs has increased, we have begun extending our educational network to select academic and educational partners.
The first educational partnership was initiated with the Claude Moore Charitable Foundation, Loudoun County Public Schools, and Inova Health System. The result of this collaboration has been the development of a scalable and replicable model for career technical education at the high school and adult technical career level. Career programs formed through this partnership provide the shape to present and future educational programs for Military to Medicine students, and in 2011, will become available to organizations nationwide who are interested in building or expanding their workforce development programs.
November 2010 marks the establishment of the first academic partner in George Washington University, whose Yellow Ribbon Program allows military families and veterans access to excellent educational opportunities at the post-secondary and graduate degree level. Military to Medicine is currently seeking to expand its network of academic and degree granting partners.
Education Partner Benefits:
Military to Medicine Education Partners will be able to attract military and veteran students through a vibrant and growing healthcare education brand, recently recognized for its innovation as the top recipient of the Newman's Own Award in September 2010. While many schools attract candidates with access to GI Bill funding, Military to Medicine provides all the recruitment and prescreening work, referring students with the capability, interest and resources to start and complete their course of study.
All student referrals from the Military to Medicine program are provided with job referral and placement services, increasing the employment outcomes of our partners and graduates. Students are also provided online and personal family support and resources to assist them in completing their course of study while managing busy military lives and families.
Organizations that are looking to improve the quality of their healthcare vocational or workforce training programs, or interested in establishing an online or hybrid training academy, there is no better time than now to prepare to meet the workforce challenges posed by an aging population and pending healthcare reform. Military to Medicine's partnership with the Claude Moore Health Care Academies is looking for partners interested in piloting new academy sites nationwide from high school through adult technical education.
