"Every servicewoman needs to hear what the VA has to offer. The VA is more than what people talk about, it's a robust system that is dedicated to providing health care to veterans.”

Welcome!

The VA is not your grandfather's VA anymore, it’s much more inclusive! VA is sponsoring training to educate servicewomen on women's health care services available from VA after separation from the military. This course provides an in-depth discussion about:

  • Female specific health care including reproductive services, maternity care, mental health services, newborn care, and gynecological care and musculoskeletal care.

  • Eligibility for VA health care and
    how to enroll.

 

  • Resources available for
    servicewomen during
    the military to civilian
    transition process.

 

About the program

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

 

  • the woman-centric culture and infrastructure of VA to better serve women Veterans

  • women’s health care 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 health care 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.

Our vision is for participants to leave the course feeling empowered to proactively manage their own health care. We aspire for them to be comforted by their new support system at VA who can guide them through the military transition process and help them navigate personal health and wellness for the rest of their lives.

Who should attend?

All servicewomen are welcome to attend
the training. We encourage attendance
from active duty servicewomen who plan
to transition to Civilian or Reserve/
National Guard Status within the next
calendar year. 

* We recommend that transitioning servicewomen
have a general understanding of the Transition
Assistance Program (TAP) benefits and attend the
TAP course prior to attending the Women’s Health Transition Training. This course is not a
substitute for TAP.

"This course eased my anxiety about my future out of the military.”

“I only thought women were eligible for service-related care. I had no idea it was a fully functional system.”

"Every servicewoman needs to hear what the VA has to offer. The VA is more than what people talk about, it's a robust system that is dedicated to providing health care to veterans.”

“I feel like I’m on a better path for the transition process. I felt like I was floating, but now have a plan. This was an eye-opener.”
