Welcome

As part of its mission of service to Appalachia, Lincoln Memorial University established the physician assistant program at its main campus in 2009.  Building on the PA program’s success and the University’s mission, the University developed the Doctor of Medical Science for physician assistants in 2016 and a second physician assistant program at its Knoxville campus in 2018. Due to the rapid growth of these programs and the physician assistant profession, the LMU School of Medical Sciences was established in 2019. Each of the school’s programs offers the highest quality medical education with state-of-the-art facilities and experienced faculty.  We hope you enjoy learning more about these programs as you browse our website.
