Current Fellows and Alumni

Physican Residents

The VA Advanced Fellowships Programs provide unique preparation for future leaders in healthcare as post-residency fellowships to physicians and dentists, advancing training for other health professions, and post-doctoral opportunities for scientists in areas of particular importance to VA and the Nation.  Where is your fellowship taking you?

Fellowship Tips from Alumni:

  • Consider personal training needs and priorities early on in the fellowship in order to obtain relevant experiences.

  • Be strategic about the types of projects to pursue. With so many existing opportunities available, it is important to be aware of straying too far from your line of research.

  • Use this opportunity to develop collaborations and foster professional relationships for the future.
