Wisconsin Academy of Physician Assistants
The Wisconsin Academy of Physician Assistants (WAPA) was established in 1976 at a time when the physician assistant was a relatively unknown position in the medical field. Over time, WAPA has promoted public awareness and understanding of PAs, advocated on behalf of Wisconsin PAs, helped PAs find jobs in Wisconsin and provided continuing medical education to PAs.
WAPA is a constituent chapter of the American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA). Each year, WAPA sends delegates to the AAPA House of Delegates to engage in policy making activities under AAPA’s bylaws.
