MEDTECH & BIOTECH VETERANS PROGRAM - 4 STEPS

Mission

The mission of MVP is to, via a 4-step process, identify thousands of military veterans, readying them for meaningful employment within a Life Science organization.

From military service to the service of promoting better healthcare and well-being in a global community, veterans discover how a civilian career in MedTech or BioTech can be that next right career.

MVP is a collaborative endeavor by AdvaMed, the Life Collaborative and MedTech and BioTech Corporate sponsors.

STEP 1: RECRUIT

MVP's goal is to identify, train-up and transition the right veterans to pursue rewarding careers in the fast growing Medical Technology and Biotechnology industries. No Ph.D., lab coat or fees required - just the outstanding work ethic of military men and women who have served our country and want to continue in an industry dedicated to the service of others.

STEP 2: EQUIP

Approved candidates elect 1 of 8 online learning programs to equip them with the basic knowledge and skill-sets for the industry that will employ them. With eLearning vetted by industry and taught by real world practitioners, veterans go from beginner to professional aptitude when it comes to applying business principles, and the latest industry advances in science and technology for the medical device and biotechnology industries.

STEP 3: APPLY

Participants expand their knowledge via online labs where MedTech and BioTech mentors (former military themselves) provide the necessary language, context and tools to aid in the seamless transition to a career in a high-potential and high-growth industry.

STEP 4: HIRE

MedTech and BioTech companies looking to hire top talent search the MVP database to find the candidates best suited for their positions. MedTech and BioTech partner companies are looking specifically for experienced military professionals across a variety of corporate functional areas (such as project management, supply chain, quality, and others), who have taken the initiative to complete MVP and the Life Collaborative’s industry-specific training programs. Job postings, externships and job shadowing opportunities are updated regularly. Regional networking events provide for face-to-face time to build relationships and learn more about specific career opportunities.

Intersecting Business with Science & Technology

Abel S.

I finished the BioTech Immersion Program... and was recently hired by a Biotech company. There are many factors that led me to getting the job, but I know that mentioning on my resume that I completed the BioTech Immersion Program also contributed to me gaining employment with that company… again my sincere appreciation!

Brian H., USMC

I cannot thank you enough for the experience I had at the MVP event. I have attended a lot of workshops and events and hands down that was one of the best ones I have attended... ... It was at the event that I really got the 1 on 1 help I needed.

David W.

The value is clear for those of our staff who have gone through the eLearning programs. The expansive cross-training nature of the learning architecture has us all speaking the same language and to the same business standard.

Mishele

I've finished the course! What a wonder!! I loved every minute of it and learned so much.. ...Outside of my two graduate degree programs (Masters and Educational Specialist), it's the best course I've ever taken, bar none!! Thank you again for all your support and encouragement.
Warmest regards, Mishele

Philip D.

...There's certainly an in-depth, very rigorous process, to make sure that we're hiring bar-raising talent and continuing the growth of our company. Once they get inside the lifelines... they need to grab ahold of developmental tools such as these e-learning programs..."
