Montana Healthcare Mutual Aid System
Medical Professionals in Montana Needed to Assist during the COVID-19 Pandemic
Montana’s Healthcare Mutual Aid System (MHMAS) is the Emergency System for the Advance Registration of Volunteer Health Professionals for the state of Montana. MHMAS is a secure, web-based online registration system used to register, verify, and credential volunteer health care professionals before a major disaster or public health emergency occurs.
Registration is open to Montana’s health and medical professionals, as well as non-medical volunteers who would like the opportunity to volunteer to respond to “all-hazards” incidents. Your involvement as a volunteer will help ensure that people affected by a disaster will receive the public health and medical care they need. During site registration, you will be required to provide basic personal and professional information (e.g., SSN, DOB) this is needed so we can conduct a background check once a request is made for volunteers. You will be able to update this information at any time as changes occur. If approved, you will receive notification of your acceptance into the system. You will from time to time receive notifications for upcoming educational and training opportunities and periodic newsletters.
Please remember that “volunteer” truly means volunteer. You can choose, at any time, to decline any request that you may receive for your deployment. Even though you are volunteering your time, a majority of the deployment requests will be paid positions. The pay for each deployment varies and will be announced at the time of the request.
Thank you for your interest in lending your skills and expertise to assist Montana during an emergency.

Workdays and hours will be determined by the requesting agency once selected.

Deployment lengths can last from a few days to several months, with an average of 14 days.
