The Southwest Region includes Veterans Affairs Medical Centers and Community Based Outpatient Clinics located in Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Arkansas. If you think big city lights shine brightest, then you've never seen the sun set over a country meadow or town square. There's simply no contest.

Many health care professionals have already discovered this best kept secret in health care: that VA rural practitioners get the same benefits shared by all Veterans Health Administration (VHA) providers. This includes top-flight facilities; flexible and generous time off; liability coverage; and incredible health, life, and retirement packages.

Plus they get a different flavor of benefits not as common in urban locations. Benefits such as:
A slower pace of life and less stress
A greater feeling of safety and security in the community
Less traffic and pollution
Lower housing costs Getting closer to the great outdoors with outdoor recreational opportunities
And, commonly, an elevated status in the community

VA is dedicated to caring for all of our Nation's Veterans. That includes the millions who make their homes in rural areas following their service. In fact, the rural Veteran population accounts for 40 percent of all VA patients. And since nearly half of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans are from rural communities, this percentage is not likely to shrink.

As the country’s largest health care employer, VA recruits Physicians, Nurses, Pharmacists, Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Psychiatric Nurses, Mental Health Therapists, Physical Therapists, Social Workers and other health care professionals for over 1,400 hospitals and medical facilities in all 50 states across the United States, several U.S. territories and the District of Columbia.

At this time, we are not considering J-1 Visa candidates.
