AASPA is the premier organization that represents PAs that work in the pre-operative, intra-operative, and post-operative settings. AASPA was formed for Surgical PAs, by Surgical PAs.
AASPA supports the surgical PA profession by addressing the needs of its membership, by marketing the profession, offering quality cost-effective CME, assisting with professional issues and providing a forum for networking and the exchange of ideas.
In addition to serving surgical PA professionals, AASPA represents PA students – both students and PA residents – in a wide variety of academic settings. AASPA provides surgical PA employers with an avenue to recruit top talent while offering affordable support opportunities to medical supply and pharmaceutical corporations.
The result: increased employment and compensation for PAs, improved patient care and safety, enhanced revenue streams, decreased physician workloads and increased visibility for the surgical PA profession.
