MFA4500 Military and Veteran Disability Evaluations

Course Overview

Educational Level: Upper undergraduate, Bachelor
Credit Hours: 3 Credits
Instructor: Dr. Hal Scott

Course Description:

The US Military and Veterans Administration each have their own process of disability evaluations. These processes are independent of each other and may not be in agreement. An overview of these systems will be explored.

How This Course Benefits Students:

Unless students have gone through a disability evaluation with the military or Veterans Affairs, they will find the process foreign and somewhat obscure. This course will help to demystify the process so that students may better understand and assist military members and veterans.

Why This Course Is Important:

Many millitary members and veterans have wounds, visible and invisible. Disability evaluations are the basis for determining disability payments and future medical benefits. Many of them need assistance.
