David Shulkin nominated to run the VA

4 posts in this topic

 


President-elect Donald Trump announced Wednesday that he plans to nominate David Shulkin to be his secretary of veterans affairs, a position that requires Senate confirmation.

 

Shulkin is currently the under secretary for health at the VA, which means he runs the Veterans Health Administration. He was nominated for that position by President Obama in March 2015 and confirmed by the Senate that June.

 

Shulkin's official bio says he is a physician — a board-certified internist — and was the chief executive or chief medical officer of several hospitals and hospital systems. He's also an entrepreneur who founded a health care information company called DoctorQuality.

Whoa boy----I will have to hear a LOT more about this guy before I can understand this. Pres-Trump obviously has place a lot of emphasis on this position, but at first blush, to me,(as a veteran)it doesn't make much sense.

same here

 

A lot depends on emphasis (threats made) on improving quality.

 

One thing nice about media being totally  against Trump   is that any that goes wrong will be week long headlines.

Well I read that this guy has a lot of experience in hospital management/administration, so at least he has a clue about health care.

guess this would be getting more attention if not for the media flap yesterday.
