To care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan. These words, spoken by Abraham Lincoln during his Second Inaugural Address, reflect the philosophy and principles that guide VA in everything we do, and are the focus of our endeavors to serve our Nations veterans and their families.
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has one of the most diverse, challenging, and rewarding missions in the United States Government. We strive to meet the needs of the Nations veterans and their families today and in the future.
Here, VA physicians enjoy being part of a team that is recognized and respected for significant contributions to medicine. Ranging from clinical practice to research and academics, VA physicians provide leadership within the medical profession that extends into the communities where they live.
To ensure that VA physicians are able to meet their professional and personal goals, a broad range of practice options are available that include general medicine and primary care, along with specialties and subspecialties such as:
Long Term Care
Spinal Cord Injury
Cardiovascular & Thoracic Surgery
Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
Radiology (Nuclear Medicine, Diagnostic, and Therapeutic)
In addition to the above, VA offers state-of-the-art equipment and facilities for basic and clinical research to further advance the frontiers of medicine and health care. Time is made available for VA physicians to pursue this critical aspect of their profession within an environment that promotes writing, editing, and publishing.
VA physicians also enjoy a quality of life that simply cant be found in private practice. With predictable work hours and conditions, VA physicians are able to take time for themselves and their families.
