Get to Know the Trump Administration VA Secretary Nominee

With the Trump inauguration this week, David Shulkin, MD, current under secretary for health at the VA, has been nominated to fill the VA Secretary cabinet position.


A little over a year ago David J. Shulkin, MD, was approved by Senate to take over the position of under secretary for health at the VA, after being nominated by President Obama in March 2015. Since his appointment, Shulkin has strongly voiced the importance of improving VA wait times, providing veterans with the utmost quality of care, and championing the VA health care system for its ability to provide services that the private sector cannot.

Here is a collection of articles published by Federal Practitioner featuring David Shulkin, MD, including exclusive interviews and an editorial written by the VA Secretary Nominee himself.
