Providing Best-in-Class Emergency Care

VHA is dedicated to providing exceptional emergency care for Veterans. If you talk to our emergency personnel, they will tell you that they work at VHA for stability, professional satisfaction, career advancement opportunities, and financial benefits. They will also tell you just how rewarding this career is.

“I have never been told thank you so often as by patients at the VA.”
— Alan Sorkey, MS, MD, FACEP

“I was thanked by patients and families more in my first week of work at the VA than in the preceding four years of urban, community EM.”
— Henry Pitzele, MD

Emergency care professionals will have exposure to things they may not see in the private sector, such as post-traumatic stress disorder and victims of military sexual trauma.

When you have an emergency medical career with VHA, you can:

  • Provide the best emergency care for those who have served
  • Take advantage of an extensive bundle of employee benefits
  • Work in a professional, supportive environment where our patients—and you—can thrive
  • Enjoy the deep appreciation of those you serve

Contact us today to learn more about the many rewarding VHA emergency medical career opportunities by emailing your questions and CV to or calling 844-456-5208.
