Help Veterans overcome mental health challenges as a psychologist at VA

From counseling to emergency services, our psychologists do whatever it takes to help Veterans reclaim their mental and emotional freedom.

At VA, you have the opportunity to practice in several specialized areas, including posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injuries and serious mental illness. VA psychologists can take on a leadership role or work in management, research, academia and training, or create system-wide change by consulting on policies and procedures.

Whatever role you choose at VA, your work will matter daily, as you embrace the mission of serving Veterans from all angles. By working for VA, you’ll have a strong voice in collaborating with primary care providers and other mental health professionals to create the right course of treatment for the Veterans under your care.

Whether you’re just starting your career or looking to continue your education to better serve your patients, you’ll find the support you’re looking for at VA. We are the largest provider of psychology training in the nation, and we fund 260 fellowship positions and internships at 106 locations each year.
