The American Association of Surgical Physician Assistants
AASPA is the leading support organization representing all PAs who manage surgical patients. AASPA helps to support PAs who seek to better their careers, their professions and the quality of patient care.
AASPAs ultimate goal is to improve patient care for surgical patients. We do this by addressing the needs of our membership, by marketing the profession, offering quality cost-effective hands-on 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.
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. More and more surgeons are recognizing the need for a Surgical PA on their team, and we want this trend to continue.
