Prospective Students

Thank you for your service to your country. The Duke Physician Assistant Program values that service, and offers many programs to help ease the transition from veteran to PA.

Waived Supplemental Application Fee

All veteran applicants to the Duke PA program will have the $50 supplemental application fee waived as a recognition of your service.

Yellow Ribbon Program

An award of $10,000 per year will be allocated to up to four eligible students. Visit the Office of the University Registrar's website for more information.   

Veteran Mentoring Program

The Duke PA program offers an unparalleled mentoring program for incoming student veterans. Starting with the class of 2019, each incoming student veteran will be matched with a veteran alumnus living in their home town. This mentoring program will begin prior to matriculation, continue throughout your time here at Duke, and through your career as a PA.
