Work at VA as a Physician Assistant (PA)

Career as VA PA

Physician Assistants work at VA for the mission

Among many of our reviews, the mission of serving Veterans is at the forefront.

In a post commending our mission of serving Veterans, a member of our team recommended working at VA for the collective goal, the strong vocation and the collegial environment they found on our team.

Similarly, an emergency room employee said that, “The Veterans are amazing individuals and worth supporting.”

Another one of our teammates called VA a “great employer,” and cited providing excellent medical care for “a great patient population” as one their favorite things about working here.

A review from one employee was summed up nicely by the title of their post, “Really enjoy working here,” but they went on to add that their work allows them to serve a marginalized population and work with many doctors who are the best in their fields.

Physician Assistants work at VA for the benefits

VA offers a remarkable compensation package, with an assortment of benefits that make the job of serving Veterans all the more appealing. Whether you want competitive salaries, flexible schedules or robust insurance options, you’ll find what matters most to you at VA.

A review from an employee looking ahead to their retirement in north Chicago, Illinois, shared that the great benefits and outstanding paid time off are positive reasons to work at VA.

Another current employee recommended VA based on their pay, saying that the compensation is competitive with, and in some cases higher than, other organizations in their location of Durham, North Carolina.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) has consistently ranked the PA profession as one of the fastest-growing occupations in the country. The BLS projects a 31% increase in the number of PA jobs* over the next seven years.
