Military Medics and Corpsmen (MMAC) Program
Attention Veterans and Military Spouses:
Your Path Is Clear To A Civilian Healthcare Career
How can the Military Medics and Corpsmen (MMAC) Program help you? Easy. Give us your employment and education goals. We’ll put you on the path to reach them. Looking to continue in patient care? Perhaps a non-clinical career that matches your military training and experience? Maybe a leadership role? Are you a Military Spouse seeking a position in Virginia’s healthcare system?
Whatever path you choose . . . we’ll clear it for you.
Path One: MMAC Qualified
Are you a veteran or transitioning Combat Medic/68W, Corpsman or Medical Technician/4N0X and it has been less than 12 months since you practiced hands-on clinical care? You may be MMAC Qualified. Only in Virginia you can continue to practice your clinical skills without the required civilian healthcare credentials – while you work to get those credentials. Keep skills sharp and credentialing on track with MMAC.
Path Two: No Veteran Left Behind
From HR to the ER or from PT to IT or engineering, healthcare needs people now with clinical and non-clinical military training and experience. Ever thought of a non-clinical role in HR, logistics or HVAC? We can help. Next to a patient, behind a desk, or on a ladder, we’ll help find your place in healthcare.
Path Three: Healthcare Leadership
Hospitals are like military installations. They need experienced leaders to keep things running efficiently and effectively. Are you that leader? From leading a practice or program, to managing safety, supply chain, infrastructure or information technology – if you are management material we’ll help find your fit.
Path Four: Military Spouses
As a Military Spouse looking to start or continue a career in Virginia’s healthcare system, you’ve come to the right place. We are advocates, an employment resource, and a source of credentialing information. MMAC sets you up for success and potential employment at MMAC Partner Healthcare Systems and Virginia Values Veterans Certified Healthcare Employers statewide. Spouses serve too. Let MMAC serve you.
What We Do At MMAC:
The MMAC team recruits, reviews and refers candidates to healthcare employers statewide. The hiring decisions and scope of practice are up to the employers. While we don’t provide licensure and certification or direct financial assistance – we do clear the path for your next mission: being part of Virginia’s civilian healthcare team. Whatever your role – we’ve got your route.
