At VA, Veterans are the focus of an all-star patient care team that provides the very best treatment. And when it comes to perioperative care, our anesthesiologists are often the real MVPs.

Explore a central role administering anesthetic care to the nation’s heroes at Anesthesiology 2019 in Orlando from Oct. 19-23. Head to VA Careers Booth 211 to discuss VA careers with healthcare recruiters Shane Stults and Ken Mitchell.

“Anesthesiologists are not only in demand at VA, but are highly valued members of the team,” said Darren Sherrard, Associate Director of Recruitment Marketing at VA. “We invite conference attendees to ask questions about our generous benefits package, which includes premium-paid health insurance, an incredible leave policy and, in certain cases, financial support with student loans.”

The Anesthesiology Annual Meeting, sponsored by the American Society of Anesthesiologists, is an opportunity for more than 14,000 global anesthesia professionals to gather and discover the latest advances in the specialty, grow professional networks and learn about innovative technologies.
