Learn from the Experts: Program Directors 101

Are you a new program director or have an interest in becoming one? Are there things that keep you up at night: the pressure of adding more students to your program, clinical site development, an impending ARC-PA site visit, curriculum development or revision, or a student in crisis?

Again this summer, PAEA is offering its popular New Program Directors Retreat, to be held outside of Washington, D.C. This five-day program is presented by a team of experienced PA educators, administrators, and content experts designed to provide the foundational skills that all program and associate directors need to be successful. The collegial connections established through this retreat experience will serve as an enduring resource for future leaders in PA education. In addition, attendees will earn Category I CME credit (pending approval).

Comments from previous attendees:

This was an outstanding opportunity to establish strong connections with colleagues, identify mentors in a variety of fields, and discuss challenging issues in a safe environment.” 

“The New Program Directors Retreat was a fantastic experience and a wonderful welcome to the administrative ranks of PA education.”
