Anderson University is looking to recruit future doctors.

Anderson University is looking to recruit future doctors, nurses and other health care practitioners from an often-overlooked source: the United States Army. 

Dr. Don Peace, Dean of the AU College of Health Professions, and Dr. Beth Snyder, graduate chair and assistant professor of nursing, participated in the 2nd Medical Recruiting Battalion Medical Professions & Chaplain Educator Tour at Fort Benning, Georgia on June 21 and 22, 2018.

A group of educators and academic chaplains from Georgia, Florida, Alabama and South Carolina toured Martin Army Health Center, one of the U.S. Army’s premier medical facilities. Army officials use the event to demonstrate how a military career help pave the way to college; health care graduates or soldiers interested in specific healthcare degrees can receive tuition support through Army service. 

The group toured various clinics within the health center, learning how Army personnel perform their jobs on a daily basis. They toured simulations labs at Martin Army Hospital and the National Infantry Museum. Dr. Peace and Dr. Snyder attended presentations on the Army’s processes for Graduate Medical Education, Surgical, Family Medicine, Nurse Anesthesia and Behavioral Health training. They were briefed about the 14th Combat Support Hospital Disaster and Humanitarian Mission to Puerto Rico as well. Dr. Peace and Dr. Snyder also attended demonstrations from Army Rangers, and later received certificates of appreciation at an evening recognition and award dinner.

The group of educators asked questions about military jobs, training and how their duties translate into civilian careers. The goal is to strengthen partnerships and build support between the military and higher education.
