Family medicine practitioners who emphasize whole-patient care serve an integral role in Veterans’s care at VA.

Ready to join our family practice? Visit the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia from Sept. 24-28 to talk to VA health care recruiters attending the Family Medicine Experience (FMX) conference, put forth by the American Academy of Family Medicine (AAFP).

Recruiters Mike Naccarato and Sam Wright will be at VA Careers Booth 443 during AAFP FMX. They can answer your questions on work-life balance at VA, benefits, leadership training opportunities and education support.

“Stop by Booth 443 and ask Mike and Sam about VA’s total rewards package, which includes competitive pay, a pension and 401(k)-type retirement savings plan,” said Darren Sherrard, Associate Director of Recruitment Marketing at VA. “Family medicine physicians are encouraged to provide resumes and pick up information to review and share.”

Learn about Veteran-related care

FMX is the AAFP’s largest annual meeting focused on family medicine. Family medicine professionals gather at the meeting to earn continuing medical education credits, experience dynamic and inspiring presentations and find patient care solutions to implement when returning to practice.

Check out the Veteran-related session called, “Returning Veterans with PTSD: When the War Comes Home.” This session, on Sept. 25 at 1:45 p.m. and again on Sept. 28 at 4:00 p.m., is presented by Paul Bornemann, M.D. Other session topics include acupuncture for pain management, prevention of acute coronary syndromes and immunization of both children and adults.

Enjoy a fulfilling career with top-notch benefits

VA physicians receive unparalleled opportunities to enjoy the science of medicine and to grow as professionals. You can advance your education, mentor and be mentored, become a principal investigator and obtain executive roles.

At VA, you’ll receive compensation based on your training, experience and the local labor market, along with up to $15,000 in additional annual performance pay. And every two years, you’ll be eligible for salary reviews and longevity increases.

  • Flexible work schedules and shifts.
  • Low patient-provider ratios.
  • Free liability coverage.
  • Career training and enhancement opportunities.
  • Dining options and a tax-free retail store.
