American Academy of Physician Assistants

Founded in 1968, the American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA) is the national professional society for physician assistants. It represents a profession of more than 86,500 certified PAs across all medical and surgical specialties in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, the majority of the U.S. territories and within the uniformed services.

AAPA advocates and educates on behalf of the profession and the patients PAs serve. AAPA works to ensure the professional growth, personal excellence and recognition of physician assistants. It also works to enhance their ability to improve the quality, accessibility and cost-effectiveness of patient-centered healthcare.

The Kentucky Academy of Physician Assistants is a constituent organization of AAPA.

Check out AAPA's online community, Huddle. This online community provides physician assistants a place to communicate, learn, share their experiences and discuss changes in the profession. It also seeks to educate the public about the PA profession and promote awareness.
