Creating specialized training, education curriculum and tuition funding resources for the critical workforce needed to enhance and sustain the Medical Device industry in the Memphis area.

More than 55 life science companies are located in the Memphis area and they are hiring individuals seeking a rewarding career. While still in high school, students can use the Tennessee Promise grant and dual enrollment classes to complete a diploma in vocational training, and then go directly into a job or an apprenticeship – with no college debt! College students may receive the same grant opportunities and extra credit for courses already completed.

The medical device industry enables workers to become a part of breakthrough treatment options that improve the quality of life for millions of people. A career in this unique industry offers individuals an opportunity to experience new discoveries, meaningful work and innovative technologies. There are dozens of diverse jobs available in the development, design, manufacturing and delivery of medical devices.

We have educational resources that help with tuition, child care, resume writing, job counseling and job interviews.  Contact the GMMDC for assistance in taking your career to the next level of expertise and satisfaction.

Our honored veterans often find it difficult to find a way back to civilian employment and we’re here to help. Your dedication, service for our country, specialized skills and past experience are valued and rewarded in the medical device industry. We’ll provide you with educational programs to train and fine tune your special skills. And most of the tuition will be paid through grants and any military re-entry program provided to you.
