Working at VA
When you work as a VA health care, administrative, or support professional, the career opportunities are virtually endless. By working for the largest, most technologically advanced integrated health care system in the Nation, you'll have access to a wider range of opportunities and leadership positions at your fingertips.
VA's vast network of facilities also means more practice settings and specialization opportunities for health care professionals. No matter which VA facility you choose, you'll work within an interdisciplinary care team structure and be challenged to achieve the most positive patient outcomes possible.
You'll have the opportunity to practice meaningful, groundbreaking medicine often treating patients with injuries rarely seen in the private sector. And, our vast network of facilities gives you access to some of the most advanced medical technologies in the Nation.
And, geography won't even get in your way. When life dictates a move, you can seek employment at any location where there is a vacancy and transfer with no loss of benefits. For health care professionals, only one current, active professional state license is necessary to practice anywhere in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
At the end of the day, VA professionals feel good about their careers, the Veterans they serve, and their ability to balance work and home life. VA offers generous paid time off and a variety of predictable and flexible scheduling opportunities.
