Celebrate PA Week with Project Access

Each year during National PA Week, we honor PAs and their incredible contributions to medicine. This October 6-12, we want to help spread the word about the PA profession by encouraging all our PA programs to host Project Access events locally (in-person or virtual depending on restrictions).  

PAEA is hosting a competition to see which of our programs can host the most innovative and engaging, student-led Project Access event during PA Week 2021. We will award prizes to the first, second and third place winners, as well as featuring them on the Project Access webpage. All groups are welcome to use the Project Access Toolkit, and we encourage each group to be as creative as possible! 

If your PA program plans to participate in the PA Week – Project Access Competition, you can sign up here. The deadline for program entries will be Tuesday, September 7 at 5:00 p.m. ET. We will be matching each student-led group with a faculty champion, if they don’t already have one, who has volunteered to mentor and offer support throughout this competition. We can’t wait to see your PA Week Project Access events!
