Certain positions within the VA health care system require specialized knowledge that can only be obtained through a two-year training program in the VA Technical Career Field (TCF) Program. These full-time training programs include salary, benefits, training, and travel.
Training for these programs is accomplished under experienced VA professionals known as preceptors. Chosen for their technical expertise and commitment to training, preceptors go through a lengthy application and screening process.
During the final year of training, preceptors work with trainees to find a position that best fits their skills, needs, and circumstances. With more than 150 medical centers and hundreds of clinics nationwide, it is possible that you will need to relocate for a position. All trainees are asked to sign a mobility statement before entering the TCF Program. If relocation is necessary for permanent placement, VA pays for moving expenses.
2013 TCF trainees have been selected. Please check back in early March to see the new list of 2014 locations and TCF contacts.
