Military Update: Veterans Affairs advocates for more medical staff

The Department of Veterans Affairs needs "tens of thousands" more personnel working in VA hospitals and clinics to meet patient demand, the new VA Secretary, Robert "Bob" McDonald, told lawmakers Tuesday at a hearing of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee. The size of the staff shortage, McDonald said, explains why VA has launched "a big recruiting effort" which he kicked off recently with visits to Duke University and University of Pennsylvania medical schools to tell students there why "VA is where they want to work."
