VA physicians practice medicine more and spend less time on business tasks. Enjoy an environment that supports an interdisciplinary care team approach that delivers state-of-the-art medicine using some of the most advanced medical techniques and technologies in the Nation.
Better Quality of Work/Life Balance! The VA knows that the first step to providing superior patient care is self care. The quality of work/life balance VA physicians experience simply cannot be found in private practice.
At Work... With predictable schedules, a virtually paperless work environment, and no billing hassles, our physicians have the time to thrive professionally and get closer to their patients. They enjoy long-term relationships with Veterans of all ages, most of whom will rely on VA caregivers for the rest of their lives.
The burden of liability protection is also lifted from our physicians' shoulders. VA physicians do not have to purchase malpractice insurance and don't have to worry about "tail" insurance coverage if they leave VA employment.
At Life... Well-rested medical staff has a direct impact on producing positive patient outcomes. In addition to predictable schedules, VA physicians earn 26 days of paid annual (vacation/personal) leave starting their first year and may accumulate up to 86 days.
