Abstract

Academic affiliations between VA medical centers and medical schools have made an important contribution to the healthcare of veterans and the education of physicians over the last 60 years. The rationale for these affiliations and their establishment following World War II is discussed. The circumstances leading to affiliations and the benefit they afford veterans remain pertinent today.
