Know Thyself: Questions for Those Considering a VA Residency

I am often asked by other providers and veterans why I chose to continue my clinical and professional chiropractic education within the Veterans Affairs (VA) healthcare system. As the largest healthcare system in the U.S., opportunities for professional growth within the VA are endless. As a new practitioner, VA is a great place to expand your comfort zone, gain experience in integrative care, grow confidence in complex and chronic health conditions, and gain exposure to a variety of clinical settings, as well as didactic and research opportunities.
