Our USE-PeaCE grant holds an aim focusing on increasing the recruitment, retention and education of Veterans who want to become PAs. We found the PA profession is historically rooted in the education of military veterans who sought physician assistant careers. The PA Veteran History Project focuses on Veterans, currently enrolled or alumni of a PA program, who wish to share their stories and help highlight Veterans in the physician assistant practice and education. The interview series will be presented as a podcast series with some video clips from interviews.
WORDS FROM A VETERAN
“PAs are always in the action and always willing to help. They are willing to get in the dirt with their medics. You lead by example and I feel like that's what a leader is suppose to do.”
