Longitudinal program connects students and veterans

Students in our new VALUE program are working with patients at the VA Medical Center for 10 months. In this model, they are able to follow their patients over a longer period of time than they would through a traditional clerkship. This experience has greatly impacted their level of confidence and ability to deliver compassionate care.
