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.

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.
