GE Healthcare today announced the graduation of the first class from its joint externship program with the U.S. Army Reserve’s 807th Medical Command (Deployment Support) (807th MDSC). The program provides training and fosters career development for biomedical equipment specialists with the goal of producing highly skilled Soldiers for Army Reserve war and peace time missions and facilitating their employment in the civilian healthcare technology industry so Soldiers stay mission-ready.

Last year, GE established a partnership with the 807th MDSC, which manages deployment of all Army Reserve field expeditionary medical units from Ohio to California, to help address the critical need for biomedical equipment specialists both within the Command and in the private sector. The pilot program graduated seven Army Reservists. A second wave made up of seven externs is midway through the program, and a third wave will commence shortly.

The externship program aligns with GE’s commitment to strengthening America’s global competitiveness by building a more highly skilled workforce and supporting the integration of the nation’s veterans into industry. In February 2012, GE announced plans to hire 5,000 veterans over the next five years and to partner with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to support its “Hiring our Heroes” initiative through career opportunities and training for veterans in 50 U.S. cities. GE Healthcare has already hired three employees through the program.

“GE is proud to count among our employees thousands of military veterans whose leadership skills and training supports our culture of dedication and commitment,” said Richard Neff, Vice President and General Manager of Service for the United States and Canada, GE Healthcare. “We are pleased with the results of this pilot program and look forward to expanding our efforts to provide career opportunities to our service men and women, addressing needs in the healthcare industry, and helping drive ‘what works’ in the American economy.”

Biomedical equipment specialists participating in the program obtain professional qualifications for both military and civilian standards. Externs complete hands-on “mission” assignments as well as Duty Military Occupational Skill Qualification requirements and acquire experience in regional medical equipment concentration sites, advanced, multi-modality biomedical training and process management training with regular progress review.

“We are pleased to collaborate with GE Healthcare to not only help meet the need for specialized biomedical training in the healthcare industry, but to also provide important opportunities for military veterans to integrate into the civilian workforce,” said Maj. Gen. L.P. Chang, Commander, 807th Medical Command.

About the 807th Medical Command (Deployment Support)
The 807th Medical Command consists of over 11,000 Soldiers and covers 26 states from Ohio to California. The 807th has 118 expeditionary units spread across its geographic area. The 807th offers full-spectrum deployable medical capabilities, including general medical care, trauma care, surgery, dental, optometry, veterinary services, behavioral health, ambulance services, preventive medicine, blood storage, medical logistics, biomedical equipment repair, eyeglass fabrication, nutrition management, and patient management. The 807th is headquartered in Salt Lake City with an operational command post located in Seagoville, Texas.

In addition to serving as a Theater Medical Command aligned to support the U.S. military’s Southern Command, the 807th Medical Command also provides military medical capabilities to support overseas contingencies operations (such as OEF), and conducts numerous humanitarian missions in the Caribbean, Central America, South America, and Africa each year. The command also works with the U.S. Navy on its humanitarian missions in the Caribbean nations and the South Pacific. The 807th is one of the U.S. Army’s lead organizations practicing medical diplomacy, projecting the United States’ soft power forward to assist nations of a strategic interest to the country.
