The Veterans Health Administration is the largest employer of neurologists in the United States. About 70% of US physicians receive some of their medical training at a VA institution. This course will inform academic neurology leaders about VA programs and resources, in the hope that the large number of academic neurology departments with VA affiliates will be able to develop a fruitful and mutually beneficial collaboration or expand upon existing strengths. Some potential obstacles will be addressed, and questions answered, in the hope that pitfalls can be avoided when forging a university-VA collaboration.
