Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Veterans' Affairs.
During fiscal year 1970, more than 49,000 persons received training through the Veterans' Administration (VA) in 125 different health services programs, including 21,550 physicians, 1,359 dentists, and 26,142 trainees in the allied and administrative health fields. Many VA hospitals and out-patient clinics indicated that more than 12,000 additional trainees could be accommodated by September 1971 if funds were provided immediately for trainee stipends, instructor salaries, space modification, and other pertinent costs. This publication lists the VA hospitals and outpatient clinics alphabetically for each of the 50 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, and the Philippines, and provides for each VA hospital and outpatient clinic, data concerning the health services training program accomplishments in fiscal year 1970 and the potential expansion by September 1971.
