    Georgia Colleges Partner to Offer Program for Veterans

    Three Georgia colleges are working together to create physician assistant education programs that will target veterans interested in the field, school officials announced Thursday.

    The partnership involves Albany State University, Georgia Regents University and Morehouse School of Medicine.
    College leaders said there is no national model on how to add spots for veterans in physician assistant programs. Only 200 veterans receive this training annually at the 170 physician assistant schools across the country.

    This partnership is one of several initiatives in Georgia and across the nation to make the physician assistant workforce more diverse.
