VA Women’s Health Transition Training

Women Veterans Health Care - She was there. It's our job to give her the best care anywhere.

The Women’s Health Services Office at the Department of Veterans Affairs, in conjunction with the Department of Defense, is hosting a Women’s Health Transition Training. The training will provide servicewomen with a deeper understanding of the women’s health services available to them within the VA health care system.

The course will cover the following:

  • The transformed culture of VA for both male and female patients
  • Range of women’s health and mental health care services and available benefits
  • Eligibility for and enrollment in VA health care
  • Expectations for women to proactively seek health care services post-separation
  • Logistical details such as facility structure, locations, and points of contact
  • Available transition support services

The course will be interactive, with opportunities to personalize training content, and will be led by a female Veteran.

Dress code is civilian casual. We encourage attendance from Active Duty Servicewomen who plan to transition to Civilian or Reserve/National Guard Status within the next calendar year.

For any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact Dr. Nancy Maher, Program Manager of the VA Women’s Health Transition Training, at nancy.maher@va.gov.
