Education & Training

The San Francisco VA supports a variety of Residency and Fellowship positions and is partnered with the University of California, San Francisco, offering top notch training in all surgical specialties and subspecialties.  Not only does the VA offer top training in surgery, it also boasts an affiliation to the largest non-profit research institute out of the 86 associated with the Department of Veterans Affairs across the country. NCIRE, the Northern California Institute for Research and Education, is self funded and allows many of the surgeons a chance to conduct and participate in research with the goals of improving health and healthcare for our veteran population, active military personnel and the nation overall.
