Dear Drs. McGinty-Tauren, Mazzarella, Tong, Mejia, and Kuiken:

Thank you for the information you provided to the VA Office of Academic Affiliations (OAA) regarding stipend rates for VA optometry residents.  Currently OAA anticipates receiving stipend increase requests from multiple professions and will review all requests in the coming months.  OAA will continue to work closely with the VA Optometry National Program Office.
