Veteran's Administration Memorandum of Understanding
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) requires that investigators with joint UMMS and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) appointments maintain a formal Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that outlines the duties and effort to be committed at both the University and the VA.
UMMS has developed guidelines to assist investigators with this process. The guidelines and the MOU template are available below:
