Plan Now for 2021 Call for Proposals

The 2021 Call for Proposals will be coming soon. Start thinking about your submissions now!

While it may seem as if the 2020 Education Forum just wrapped up, PAEA will be kicking off the new year with opening the 2021 Education Forum Call for Proposals. All members are encouraged to start considering their potential submissions for the Forum, scheduled for October.

Call for 2021 Education Forum Proposals

Be on the lookout for PAEA to launch the call for proposals for the 2021 Education Forum in mid-January. Once again, we will have tracks representing topics critical to PA education as well as those most relevant to PA educators’ professional development. Here are the tracks for this upcoming year:


  • Competency-Based Education
  • Integrating Technology into the Learning Experience
  • Teaching the 21st Century Learner
  • Transforming the Student Experience
  • Driving Innovations in Clinical Education
  • Organizational Success
  • Inclusive Excellence
  • Health Systems Science

Those submitting will also be asked to indicate a session type from the list below:

Session Types

  • Focused Discussion
  • Panel Presentation
  • Makerspace Workshop
  • Spotlight Presentation
  • Research Brief
  • Research Poster Presentation

PAEA will share additional information about these types of sessions as well as the call for proposals process (i.e., submission guidelines, session criteria, informational webinar, and FAQs) in the coming weeks.

Also Coming Soon – Call for 2021 Education Forum Proposal Reviewers  

We will be looking for PA educators to serve as conference proposal reviewers for the 2021 Education Forum. Reviewers will participate in a blinded peer-review of all Forum education sessions and research proposals, and should expect to review, score, and provide feedback on 15–20 proposals based on their area(s) of expertise. The review period will occur in the spring. Detailed information about the review process, as well as the application to become a reviewer, will be available in January.
