VA/DoD Health Affairs
10P5 Sponsors U.S. Army War College Fellows
Fellows take advantage of a learning environment that is apart from that which is traditionally offered by the Department of Defense (DoD) Senior Service Schools, and also parlay knowledge gained for the betterment of the Army.
Equally, the United States Army War College (USAWC) Fellows act as ambassadors of the U.S. Army, engaging students, faculty, researchers and the public in presentations and a host of formal and informal engagements.
The Fellows’ experiences at the VA will help prepare them for positions of broad scope in highly complex, ambiguous environments, often dealing with problems that have no clear-cut solutions.
OHA annually sponsors a senior level Active Duty Officer to attend the USAWC Fellowship.
USAWC fellowships provide a professional development opportunity for an Active Duty Army Officer in the Medical Department to be directly involved in supporting the coordination and delivery of Veteran’s benefits and services.
The selected Senior Officer gains a fundamental understanding and actual experience in developing proactive Army policy to support VA and Army collaborative efforts.
This program offers an educational experience that provides interaction with senior leadership from VA’s three administrations in addition to Department-level Central Program Offices.
The Servicemembers who participate in these fellowships have demonstrated their potential to serve at the highest levels of military service.
The USAWC manages the education of more than 90 USAWC Fellows each year, whose advanced educational experience takes place at 49 locations in 55 programs across the United States and overseas.
