VA Women'S HEALTH TRANSITION TRAINING

The Veterans Affairs Center for Women Veterans offers free training to educate servicewomen on women’s healthcare services available from VA after separation from the military. This course provides an in-depth discussion about:

  • Female specific healthcare including reproductive services, maternity care, mental health services, newborn care, and gynecological care and musculoskeletal care.
  • Eligibility for VA healthcare and how to enroll.
  • Resources available for servicewomen during the military to civilian transition process.

This interactive and high-energy course is taught by a woman Veteran who uses VA healthcare and is designed to educate transitioning servicewomen about:

  • The woman-centric culture and infrastructure of VA to better serve women Veterans
  • Women’s healthcare services (e.g. maternity care, cancer screenings, whole health, and mental health care services)
  • The process and eligibility requirements for enrollment — you don’t have to be disabled to receive healthcare at the VA
  • Connecting with other women Veterans through women-specific networks, resources, and programs post-service
  • How to find your local VA facility and POCs for additional support

This is a voluntary program intended to complement TAP and to provide all servicewomen with specific women’s health information that will aid the transition to civilian life.
