Div. 18 is the home division for VA psychologists within APA because it’s the only division with a dedicated section for VA psychologists. VA Section members include psychologists and other stakeholders who promote the VA’s mission through patient care, research, training and consumer activities, and who form a national network to share ideas and address concerns.
