Breaking down barriers to health care for rural Veterans is fundamental to the work of the Office of Rural Health (ORH). Key programs include:

  • A national studies agenda
  • Mentored implementation of Rural Promising Practices for VA providers which includes funding resources
  • Free online training opportunities for providers, students and trainees
  • Dissemination of research by a national studies team
  • Access to the Rural Veterans Health Care Atlas, a comprehensive resource guide that features information on the rural Veteran population, VA enrollees and patients, utilization trends, broadband coverage, ten disease-specific groups, as well as medical facilities located in rural America
