Medics And Corpsmen: Your Path Is Clear! Military medics and corpsmen receive extensive and invaluable health care training and experience while on active duty. When they leave the service, many medics and corpsmen find their military healthcare training does not translate into the licenses required for civilian healthcare jobs. Many face the challenge of being unemployed, underemployed or not working in the in- demand healthcare field. The Military Medics and Corpsmen Program (MMAC) addresses these challenges by providing veterans employment and educational pathways, offsetting healthcare staffing shortages and supporting quality patient care in Virginia. MMAC works with major Virginia health care employers to facilitate the hiring of medics and corpsmen upon completion of their military service. MMAC recruits, reviews and refers candidates to MMAC Partner Healthcare Systems. The program provides employment and educational opportunities for qualified veterans to apply their extensive clinical skills and experience under supervision while they obtain required civilian clinical licensure.
Virginia is the first state to offer this kind of innovative pathway for these highly skilled veterans. As a clear path to employment and education, MMAC draws veterans to Virginia from across the globe. MMAC is people and organizations coming together as a team to serve the citizens and employers of the Commonwealth and those who served our country: that’s teamwork at its best .
