Veteran’s Affairs Academic Scholars Program

This is an exciting pilot opportunity for students who are interested in the Veterans Affairs Healthcare System.


The primary purpose is to gain an appreciation for the unique health experiences of veterans. Class and clinical opportunities will support an understanding of contributing factors.

Additionally, students will gain familiarity with the origins of the Veterans Affairs (VA) system; to understand what makes the VA unique; to become more informed about the VA system and benefits.
