Meridian Clinical Research, a leading multi-specialty investigative research network, is now an authorized SkillBridge organization. SkillBridge, a Department of Defense program, connects Service members with opportunities to gain civilian work experience through internships, apprenticeships, and specific industry training during the last 180 days of their service.
“We’re honored to be part of SkillBridge and look forward to helping military personnel transition into positions at our sites nationwide,” said Stephanie Anderson, Meridian’s Vice President, Human Resources. “A regimented, detail-oriented approach is necessary for the highly-sensitive work we perform and the care we provide to patients. Meridian has hired numerous veterans who have quickly become valuable team members.”
Meridian’s positions through SkillBridge will be related to healthcare support, business/financial operations, administrative support, business development, and more. “We invite any active Service member to apply at Meridian, particularly if they’re interested in clinical research, healthcare delivery, or business administration,” said Anderson. Service members can apply for consideration across Meridian’s entire network using the general Meridian SkillBridge listing on Lever.
