You’ll manage health care resources, work to improve hospital performance, ensure patient and employee satisfaction, and participate in strategic planning.

This includes compliance with credentialing and privileging processes, monitoring and evaluation of clinical practice, peer review and other quality assurance.

Other responsibilities include:

You’ll earn up to 26 paid days off and 13 sick days each year, as well as 10 paid federal holidays and paid parental leave.

With one valid license, you can practice anywhere in the nation. There are VA locations in all 50 states and some U.S. territories, so it’s easy to relocate and take all your benefits with you.

    I will love to help, but one of the vacancies on the article, San Juan, Puerto Rico (VA Caribbean), is not currently posted in USA Jobs. Last times that was posted in USA Jobs where those on 1/16/2020 and 8/26/2019, that both of them appears as “Job Cancelled”, but really “no candidate selected”….
    Did I missed the announcement?

    Please also seek out physicians who are currently employed at military installations. These physicians are highly qualified and my fellow veterans and I trust them with our health care. Thank you.
