The MedTechVets Academy
A free seven-week program to accelerate your career transition to MedTech, Life Science, Pharmaceuticals, and Medical Device industries hosted 4 times a year.
The MedTechVets Academy is a bridge between military service and your next purposeful career.
The MedTechVets Academy is a comprehensive career transition and mentorship program for Veterans who are within 6 months of separation from the military or honorably discharged. MedTechVets offers 4 Academy sessions a year – Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall.
This program is designed to bring you from being overwhelmed and stuck in your post-military career search to being equipped and employed in the MedTech, Life Sciences, Pharmaceutical, or MedDevice industry of your choice.
Best of all, you don’t need a medical background to apply! We work with you and the experience you’ve gained on how to translate those skills to your desired role.
Army, Navy, Marines, Cost Guard, or Space Force?
Whatever branch you served in, your military training cultivated skills translate well into the corporate world. You don’t need to be a doctor or a scientist to succeed in the MedTech industry.
You’ve got the teamwork, management, goal-directed action, organizational and delegation skills, let us help you effectively translate it!
You don’t have to do this alone – there’s a team to support you. The MedTechVets Academy is designed to move you forward with your mission.
When you have the right support and connections you’ll find your new career in an industry with advancement potential, defined teams, and meaningful outcomes.
Who can apply?
Military service members within 6 months of separation
Veterans honorably discharged
Those interested in exploring MedTech and how to find a meaningful career that matches with your service
What is the application process?
A team member will reach out to you within 3 days of your application to set up a short 15-minute informational zoom call. We will go over the details of the program and find out your desires for the industry.
After the zoom call, you will be emailed a 3-question survey used for mentor pairing purposes. Wait, a team member will be in contact with you every step of the way until you are notified of your acceptance into the cohort of your choosing.

In a November 2015 study
Veterans, active-duty service members, National Guard and Reserve members, and military dependants identified that…
have trouble navigating programs, benefits, and other services.
have trouble finding a job.
have trouble adjusting to civilian culture.
have trouble applying military-learned skills to civilian life.
Many Veterans just like you struggle to find employment when entering the civilian workforce, despite having excellent skills and qualifications. Let us be the bridge for you and change these statistics around! Our specially designed program covers all of these areas and so much more!
Your career readiness depends on access to relevant and timely information as well as experiences that set you up for success during job searching and interviewing in the civilian world. We are here to teach you the language of the civilian workforce so you can enter this new arena and clearly communicate the true depth of value you bring.
Civilian employers often don’t connect the description on your resume to the job qualifications they are looking for. So your resume gets bypassed, leaving you frustrated and unemployed – but it doesn’t have to be this way. You also don’t want just any j-o-b, you want a career with purpose, a mission, and a team so you can continue to impact the world as you support yourself and your family.
MedTechVets support continues beyond graduation and the networking conference. It provides ongoing partnerships as you continue your career transition. Plus, you’re a MedTechVets Academy alumni now – you’re part of the team. You will be amazed at the growth and change that will happen within one year’s time.
