Intern and Fellowship Opportunities

Each year, nearly 1,300 people complete training experiences in a wide variety of occupations at VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System. We offer trainees a unique educational experience. Students at the college, university, and post-graduate levels are encouraged to explore career training here.

To find out if your school has an academic affiliation, or to establish a new affiliation, please call 412-360-6591.

VA's Office of Academic Affiliations would like clinical trainees to take the Learners' Perceptions Survey after completing a significant portion of their training. The survey asks you to rate various aspects of your clinical training experience. Information from the survey provides feedback in identifying areas of excellence as well as areas needing improvement.

If you are preparing to begin a training opportunity, please review our list of required paperwork. For specialty-specific questions, please contact your assigned training coordinator.
