Every year from October 6-12, we celebrate National PA Week, which recognizes the PA profession and its contributions to the nation’s health. We thank all of our VA PAs for your dedication to providing care to our nation's veterans every day.
The Veterans Affairs Physician Assistant Association is a Constituent Chapter of the American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA). Founded in 1984, we are a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing the physician assistant profession. We accomplish our goals by developing collaborative relationships with organizations that share common goals. Our mission is to ensure that PAs within the VA can continue to provide high quality care to our nation's Veterans.
