Robert Gay, Senior VP and COO of American Military University (AMU), and General Richard B. Myers, 15th Chairman of the Joint Chiefs and Chairman of Board of Trustees of Medisend College of Biomedical Engineering Technology, sign a partnership to help veterans re-enter the civilian workplace with the education and credentials to pursue careers in the rapidly-growing healthcare industry.
AMU’s Bachelor of Applied Science in Technical Management builds upon prior education and work experience gained through Medisend’s AAS while the B.S. in Information Technology Management focuses on the problem-solving skills and techniques needed to provide computer-based solutions to practical problems.
“Veterans can complete an accelerated Associate of Applied Science in Biomedical Engineering Technology in Medisend’s General Richard B. Myers Veterans Program and enhance their credentials once employed by then completing a bachelor’s degree in IT or technical management, fully-online at AMU,” said Nick Hallack, president and CEO of Medisend College.
“Our respective programs are ideally suited to the unique needs and skills of our nation’s service members,” said Gen. Richard Myers, USAF (ret.), former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Chairman of Medisend College Board of Trustees and President of Kansas State University. “This collaboration will help provide both the technical and business and management expertise necessary for a broad variety of healthcare-related careers.”
“Working adults and employers alike are increasingly seeking and benefiting from stackable, career-relevant credentials,” said APUS President Dr. Karan Powell. “We’re very honored to partner with Medisend and General Myers to provide versatile programs designed to help veterans succeed professionally in their transition to the civilian workforce.”
