Veterans’ Care Bill Increases Number of Training Positions

Hart Health recently alerted AAAAI about a new bill that was passed by Congress and signed into law by President Obama. The Veterans' Access to Care through Choice, Accountability, and Transparency Act of 2014 authorizes the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to hire and train more physicians and allows veterans access to care at non-VA facilities. The bill instructs the VA to add at least 1,500 graduate medical education residency slots over five years at VA facilities that are experiencing shortages or located within a federally designated Health Professions Shortage Area.

Hart Health continuously monitors health-related legislation for the AAAAI, and we will share further updates we receive.
