2021 PAEA Education Forum: What You Can Expect

Year after year, we have the honor of experiencing the power of PA educators coming together at the PAEA Education Forum, bringing their passion, wisdom, and vision for the future in hopes of widening the path to PA education for generations of students to come.  

At the 2020 Forum, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, our members gathered virtually to share their experiences and find the rejuvenation, encouragement, and strength needed to continue in the midst of uncertainty. Last year’s takeaway was abundantly clear: whether in-person or virtually, meeting together is essential. As many of our members emphasized in the networking sessions, “PA educators need each other.”

At the 2021 virtual Forum, you can expect more opportunities to find solutions, forge meaningful relationships, and receive the support you need from those who most understand your experiences and challenges. As we move ahead from a period of transformation that is sure to shift the future of the PA profession as we know it, this year’s sessions – thoughtfully created by PA educators across the country – are sure to be timely and inspiring, reflecting themes of wellness, rejuvenation, inclusive excellence, and more.

At PAEA, we understand that it is our members’ great privilege and responsibility to collectively shape the future of PA education. Join us at Forum 2021 to bring your unique perspective and learn from colleagues from all experience levels and positions. Don’t miss this opportunity to pave the road toward “health for all” alongside your fellow colleagues during this important moment in time.
