Physician Assistant Studies

VET-UP© for Veterans

The South College VET-UP© program is specifically designed to offer those veterans who were medics and corpsmen providing life saving health care skills in the United States Armed Forces the opportunity to continue their professional education with the goal of becoming a Physician Assistant.

The program focuses on adding to the extensive military training and real-world experience these veterans have by bridging the gap between military health care experience and the civilian graduate medical education of a Physician Assistant program.

Our program offers mentorship, advice, and partnering with a veteran faculty member to assist you in your path to become a Physician Assistant. These men and women will have a unique opportunity to continue to serve others above themselves as "Lifesavers, then Caregivers of the Future."

We encourage active duty military and returning medics and corpsmen to contact the School of Physician Assistant Studies at South College, 865-251-1800, or email us at
