VA Section Student Resources
VA Section wants to foster engaged student members, as we hope they will want to continue their membership in this organization following graduation from their programs, and more importantly, consider a career serving military service members and veterans.
If you’re a Div. 18 member and interested in getting more involved in VA Section, contact our VA Section student representative, Rachel Ward. Be sure to ask how to get added to the student listserv so you can contribute to discussions and receive relevant notifications.
Student mentorship program
Div. 18 offers a student mentorship program. Many of the mentors are VA psychologists. If you are interested in participating in the mentoring program, please contact Div. 18 student member representative, Ashlee Martlage.
