Are you or do you know someone who might be interested in becoming a Military Medicine Ambassador?
The Uniformed Services University has recently established a Military Medicine Ambassador (MMA) Program. The mission of this program is to make known and communicate the opportunities available to practice medicine as a uniformed physician trained through the Health Professions Scholarship Program or the Uniformed Services University.
Military Medicine Ambassadors (MMAs) are “field” representatives of military medicine who provide information to interested pre-medical students and medical school applicants about medical school officer accession programs and the Uniformed Services University. MMAs will have the opportunity to visit their alma maters and/or universities near their hometowns, duty stations, or current medical practices.
Although many MMAs will be HPSP graduates, USU alumni, active duty service members, retirees, or separated service members; prior military service is not a requirement or pre-requisite for assignment. Anyone who has a sincere interest in military medicine, to include pre-medical and medical students, may be enrolled within this program.
One of the goals of this program is for MMAs to develop relationships with pre-medical programs, pre-health advisors, military recruiters, and interested applicants by sharing their personal experiences and knowledge about life as a uniformed physician. Volunteers will be able to participate as their schedules permit, and they will be provided with all the information and training necessary to participate in these activities. MMAs will also be able to utilize this work for their professional resume or curriculum vitae in support of academic promotions at USU.
