May is Melanoma Awareness Month, a time for people to learn about skin cancer, its prevention and its detection. At VA, this is especially important, considering that Veterans who’ve served in Iraq and Afghanistan’s desert sun have an increased risk of skin cancer. That’s one of the many reasons why we’re committed to raising awareness of the cause.
A big part of this effort is our dermatologists, who are responsible for providing treatment and education to patients with skin injuries and diseases. Through one-on-one consultations, these professionals can help Veterans minimize their risk of skin cancer by advising them on prevention techniques, such as applying proper amounts of sunscreen when outside for extended periods of time.
If you’re interested in becoming part of our team, we have several available positions in dermatology and beyond for you to explore. No matter which role you take on, you’ll enjoy outstanding benefits, including comprehensive health coverage, generous paid time off, flexible scheduling and much more. Above all, you’ll have the unique opportunity to serve those who’ve served our country—an honor that can bring unmatched fulfillment to your life.
