Palmer College has provided more than $6 million in pro-bono care to military members across all three campuses since the program began in 2008. 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.
Palmer College is a Yellow Ribbon Program participant. The Yellow Ribbon Program can help you pay for higher out-of-state, private school, or graduate school tuition that the Post-9/11 GI Bill doesn’t cover.

In 2021, Palmer College of Chiropractic was recognized as one of the "Best for Vets" by the Military Times.
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.
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.
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 Main 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.
