May 24, 2012—The slideshow features highlights from the 15th annual VA Psychology Leadership Conference, which took place April 11-14, 2012 in San Antonio, Texas. The theme of the 2012 VA Psychology Leadership Conference was "VA Psychology Advancing the Transformation: New Directions and Technologies for Care.” This keystone event in public sector psychology is co-sponsored by the American Psychological Association (APA) Practice Directorate, Association of VA Psychologist Leaders (AVAPL) and APA Division 18 (Psychologists in Public Service).

The VA is the largest single employer of psychologists in the United States and the largest integrated care system in the country. Initiated in 1998, the yearly conference showcases the highest quality of patient care to U.S. veterans while addressing the professional needs and concerns of VA psychologists. This conference both provides an opportunity for participants to network and encourages support for growing numbers of psychology leaders to move into key leadership positions in the VA health care system.
