Free Online Training in Military Culture for Health Care Providers

Seal of the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (1989-2012)
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is the largest provider of predoctoral internship training for doctoral students in psychology, and so it is no surprise that many of the doctoral students who have worked at the Anger and Traffic Psychology Lab complete their internships at VA sites. We have a couple doctoral students who will be applying for VA internships in the next couple months, and some of our previous students are employed as psychologists in the VA system.

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Employee Education System and Mental Health Services and the Department of Defense have made online training in military culture available at no cost for community health providers, including students in training. The course, Military Culture: Core Competencies for Health Care Professionals, is divided into four modules:

I found the training very informative, and I think it would be a great resource for students planning to work with veterans, especially those interested in VA internships.

Continuing education credits are available for licensed providers, and supplemental material is available from the Center for Deployment Psychology. It looks like the program is set to expire in early November, so do not procrastinate if this is something you'd like to do.
