With Veterans Health Administration, you have the privilege of treating the brave men and women who served our country. And there are many more reasons why you might consider a VA position over private practice. From comprehensive education and training programs to competitive salaries and insurance packages, we’re committed to making sure our physicians are well supported. As you plan your future, consider the benefits of a career at VA.

To ensure our Veterans continue to receive the best care, we support the pursuit of higher education for all our health care professionals. VA offers educational incentive programs, scholarships, and loan repayment programs to keep you at the top of your game.

Enjoy a work/life balance that is almost impossible to find in the private sector. Our physicians aren’t bogged down with patient paperwork, because we understand that quality time equals quality care for our Veterans. And you’ll have plenty of time to rest and refresh with ample vacation and personal leave.

Physicians at VA practice with peace of mind, thanks to a comprehensive insurance benefits package, which includes complete liability protection through the Federal Government. We offer robust health, retirement, and financial savings plans to make sure you and your family’s future is secure. And if you ever need to relocate, one active state license makes you eligible to practice at any VA facility in the USA. You can smoothly transition without any lapse in benefits or seniority.

At VA, we believe that having the support you need in your career means you’re free to focus on what matters most – our Veterans. Lead a life of service at Veterans Health Administration, and change the lives of our Nation’s heroes for the better. Find out more about positions near you.
