The VA system employs Chiropractic Residents within five different states across the country: CT, NY(2), MO, and CA. These post-graduate opportunities offer a one-year integrative experience that includes rounding with other healthcare professionals, patient cases that are complex, subtle, and/or infrequently seen, and of course - the chance to serve veterans in a way that can be truly impactful.
The VA chiropractic residency program focuses on Integrated Clinical Practice, with training emphasizing the provision of chiropractic care in an integrated healthcare system, collaborating with primary care Patient Aligned Care Teams (PACTs), specialty care, and other medical and associated health providers and trainees.
The residencies provide advanced clinical training in complex case management, allowing recent graduates to increase their scope and depth of clinical knowledge, experience and acumen. Residents are mentored by senior VA chiropractors who are national leaders in integrated chiropractic practice. These clinicians share their expertise in patient care, academics and research to provide a robust educational experience.
These hospital-based training programs expand the residents’ ability to collaborate with other healthcare professionals in team care, as trainees learn with and from other healthcare providers during interdisciplinary rotations. Residents develop their knowledge of hospital practice, policies and procedures, and are better prepared for future positions in VA, other healthcare systems, and/or academic settings.
The Residency application period opens January 8th and closes February 2nd. If you are interested in applying, or you simply want to know more, please click on the links below.
