Connecticut Academy of Physician Assistants
The Connecticut Academy of Physician Assistants (ConnAPA) is part of a national network of constituent chapters devoted to representing and promoting the interests of PAs. ConnAPA has had a long and productive relationship with the American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA) and ConnAPA members regularly serve on AAPA committees and boards. Elected representatives of ConnAPA participate in the AAPA House of Delegates helping to develop national policies and procedures.
ConnAPA is a growing organization that, in addition to the efforts of its dedicated leadership and committee members, employs professional management to handle the day-to-day business of the Academy and assist in the delivery of membership services. ConnAPA members enjoy numerous opportunities for professional development and involvement, as well as opportunities to meet and network with their peers (ex. CME dinners at no charge to members).
ConnAPA members founded the Connecticut Physician Assistants Foundation (ConnPAF), a charitable organization operated exclusively for educational and research purposes. The Foundation conducts research on topics relevant to PAs and awards scholarships to Connecticut residents enrolled full-time in accredited PA programs anywhere in the United States.
As with any professional society, the membership is its strength. ConnAPA’s members are committed to their profession and to improved access to cost effective, quality health care.
