Learn about rewarding psychiatry careers helping Veterans improve their mental health during the virtual American Psychiatric Association (APA) annual meeting May 1-3, 2021.
At VA, you’ll enjoy a meaningful career giving back to those who have served and helping them recover from depression, substance abuse, posttraumatic stress disorder and more.
Due to COVID-19, the APA meeting will be held completely online this year, with a virtual exhibit hall, live sessions, lectures and keynote speakers, and opportunities to earn continuing medical education (CME) credit.
Stop by the VA Careers virtual booth to speak with recruiters, find out about open positions and learn more about why you should choose a psychiatry career at VA.
“We’re hiring psychiatrists at VA facilities from coast to coast. They are vital to improving mental health care for the nearly 9 million Veterans enrolled at VA,” said Darren Sherrard, associate director of recruitment marketing.
A fulfilling career
Veterans face unique challenges when returning home and transitioning back to civilian life, and our psychiatrists and other mental health professionals expertly tailor treatment plans that empower Veterans to take charge of their wellbeing and pursue fuller lives.
In addition to the rewards of a career based on giving back, you’ll enjoy a competitive salary and a wide range of benefits. Stop by our booth to talk with our recruiters about perks like:
- Group health insurance, including dental, vision and long-term care insurance.
- Generous leave policies.
- Paid parental leave.
- Liability coverage worth thousands of dollars a year.
