The VHCP Educational Network

The VHCP Educational Network is comprised of 12 Chicago-area colleges and universities focused on promoting academic innovations to strengthen veterans’ access to healthcare career opportunities and building the capacity of educational institutions to support student veteran success. VHCP is led by the Council for Adult & Experiential Learning (CAEL) with support from the Michael Reese Health Trust and in collaboration with the Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs (IDVA) and the Illinois Department of Employment Security (IDES).
