Committed to our Military

Service members, you have our support.

You and your family have sacrificed for our freedom. We thank you for your sacrifice, and we honor your service.


Military Care Program

Since 2008, the Palmer Chiropractic Clinic locations nationwide have offered a Military Care Program that has provided over $3M of in-kind services. Any chiropractic service, x-ray or physical examination is offered at absolutely no out-of-pocket cost for any active duty personnel, their dependents or veterans with a 20% service connected disability rating or greater.

Yellow Ribbon Program

Palmer College is a Yellow Ribbon Program participant offering U.S. veterans up to 100 percent tuition and fee coverage for one full year.

Research in Military Populations

The Palmer Center for Chiropractic Research, the largest chiropractic research center in the U.S., has funding from the Department of Defense and the National Institutes of Health to study chiropractic treatment in military and veteran populations. This research is one more way Palmer demonstrates a strong commitment to our military.

DoD/VA Chiropractic Internships

Palmer's DoD/VA internship opportunities enable students to change lives as they serve our nation's veterans and gain invaluable experience. They’ll learn how doctors of chiropractic work with medical professionals across many disciplines for the benefit of the patient. Palmer interns work with staff chiropractors in a Department of Defense or Veterans Affairs hospital or clinic, providing care to veterans and military personnel.

Palmer Veterans Association

Established in 1947, the Veterans Association is a community service opportunity for any Palmer student who is a veteran. Veterans on campus work at the Davenport Campus' canteen to raise funds for donations to both chiropractic and veterans charities. The veterans canteen also provides a dedicated social space for vets to gather.

Academic Success and Wellness
