Overview
Summary

VA employs more than 14,000 physicians across its nationwide integrated health care system. Every year, many experienced physicians leave private practice to come to the VA Health Care System because we offer a variety of advantages.

VA Physicians work with the entire interdisciplinary care team to deliver state-of-the-art medicine using some of the most advanced medical technologies in the Nation.
