Welcome to Maryland - A Guide to Healthcare Occupations in Maryland - Military Personnel and Spouses Relocating to Maryland - PROVET


This information packet was designed for military service members and their spouses interested in pursuing a medical career. If you were recently reassigned to Maryland or are exploring your options after separation, the information before you will help you take advantage of various medical career opportunities in Maryland. In addition to an overview of several professions, this packet contains information on education assistance, certification requirements, living in Maryland, and a special section for spouses.

Development of this guide is a collaborative effort being undertaken by the Maryland Governor's Workforce Investment Board; Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation; U.S. Department of Labor, Veterans Employment and Training Services; U.S. Department of Defense, Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness; Department of Veteran Affairs, Office of the Under Secretary for Benefits; and other government and industry partners. As the project expands, the content of this guide will be regularly updated to include information on other healthcare professions in Maryland.

This Guide is produced by a project of the Maryland Governor's Workforce Investment Board, a division of the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation. The Board wishes to acknowledge and thank the following for their support.
