Victoria Cannon | Physicians Assistant Doctoral Program | Presbyterian College | Clinton SCVictoria Cannon

PA Student
Class of 2021

Hometown: Greenwood, S.C.


Victoria earned her bachelor’s degree at Presbyterian College in 2019. She majored in biology and English and added a minor in chemistry. 

While at PC, Victoria led the American Chemical Society as president. She volunteered with the club, organizing community outreach events to share science with students in the Clinton, S.C., community. 

Victoria decided to become a PA because it aligns with her values.

“The role of a physician assistant is unique and is one that will allow me to be a part of a diverse team, explore various fields of medicine, and develop strong connections with patients,” she said.

The decision to come to Presbyterian was a no-brainer.

“In a way, I think this program chose me,” she says.

“I came to Presbyterian College in 2015 knowing that I wanted to work in medicine, but I hadn’t really considered options other than pre-med. When I heard that PC would soon be opening a PA school, I did my research and was immediately drawn to the field, researching various programs and creating checklists to prepare.

“Soon there was no doubt in my mind that this is where I was supposed to be. I am so thankful for the opportunities that PC has provided me with already.”
