Celebrating PA Week: A Message from PAEA’s CEO

To our extraordinary members, happy National PA Week! This week, we celebrate you. PAs are compassionate providers and expert communicators, bridging the gap to the care our communities need.

As a PA educator, you offer far more than knowledge and expertise to our profession. Each day, you serve your students – and ultimately every individual they will care for – as a confidant, mentor, advocate, and friend. The resilience, innovation, and passion for service you offer each day are a gift to our nation and world.

At PAEA, we are proud to represent and support PA educators and students across the nation, and are committed to supporting you in your pursuit of being the best educator you can be. We do not take this responsibility lightly, and everything we do is guided by our mission of leadership, innovation, and excellence in PA education.  

To our members – the incredible educators training the next generation of PAs, we say thank you. You lead by example by demonstrating competence and character, service and self-improvement, and most of all – passion and purpose. 

This week, we encourage you to take time to celebrate your contributions to the PA profession. Here are a few ways you can join in:
