        A portable career. A vital mission.
        A network to make transitions at ease.
        It’s a fact, military life requires frequent moves — and those relocations make it difficult for military spouses
        like you to establish a career. Military to Medicine offers you the training and employer network you need to
        develop a portable career that moves with you. Like the military service member – always at the ready – your
        career will be too.

        There’s a very good reason to choose a career in healthcare — it is the fastest growing field in America with a
        shortage of qualified workers. Military to Medicine offers a solution to this worker shortage by recruiting and
        training extended military family members to become workforce-ready healthcare employees. It’s a natural
        fit — healthcare jobs are found in every state; healthcare employers look for both direct patient care providers
        and those from administrative and technology fields; schedules are flexible; and the experience you gain
        moves with you.

        Whether you have healthcare experience or want to start a new career, Military to Medicine provides the
        pathway to training and employment opportunities at little to no cost to you.
