Federal Practitioner is a monthly, peer-reviewed clinical journal for clinicians in the Department of Veterans Affairs, Department of Defense, and Public Health Service. The journal publishes clinical review articles, original research, case reports, discussions of common errors, practice pearls, evidence-based treatment protocols, pertinent ethical viewpoints, as well as in-depth profiles of new programs and procedures within the federal health care system. Federal Practitioner aims to meet the unique needs of those practicing within the federal health care community by keeping the readership apprised of practice guidelines pertinent to treating the nation's armed forces, veterans, and Native Americans, and by recognizing the distinct health care perspective these readers possess.
