The Graduate Healthcare Administration Training Program Board would like to invite VA permanent employees to advance their careers in the Health Systems Management (HSM) Trainee Program. The HSM Trainee Program is a primary source for developing highly trained health care administration professionals, who provide staff support to key health care management officials within VA medical facilities.
Candidates selected as HSM trainees will participate in a structured training program, designed to develop core competencies and targeted skill sets. Each trainee will complete three book reviews, three executive interviews, a shadowing assignment, an acting supervisor position rotation, a leadership development team assignment, and an individual project, as well as serve as a facilitator, complete public speaking skills training, and demonstrate community involvement as part of the developmental assignments during the program.
The 12-month program is offered at the GS-09/11 level.
