The VA Advanced Fellowships Programs offer post-residency, post-doctoral, and post masters fellowships to physicians and dentists, and associated health professions - including but not limited to nurses, psychologists, social workers, and pharmacists. Although most Advanced Fellowship programs target clinical professions several programs offer training for non-clinical healthcare professions.

The VA Advanced Fellowship programs provide unique preparation for future leaders in healthcare by providing hands-on mentored educational experiences to develop skills in specific clinical areas and more broadly for healthcare system and healthcare education system transformation through policy, system redesign, and research. Through creative partnerships, use of new technology, and innovative educational modalities, the VA Advanced Fellowships Program promotes and fosters the highest standards of leadership, intellectual integrity, research, and patient care.

At its core, Advanced Fellowships seeks to provide robust educational opportunities for the next cohort of healthcare leaders and change agents who will continue the VHA’s effort to provide exceptional health care to Veterans.

Vision Statement: Improving healthcare through advanced training of emerging interprofessional leaders. Mission Statement: Advanced Fellowships aligns closely with Veterans Health Administration (VHA) initiatives to meet the current and emerging needs of Veterans. To aid in attaining the VHA’s mission to provide “exceptional health care”, Advanced Fellowships broadly target training in healthcare education, advanced clinical practice, research, and policy initiatives that improve the health and well-being of our Nation’s Veterans.
