AAPA is proud to support the PA research community and facilitate PA research. We are happy to support research through our Research Services, Research Publications, and Research Community Survey Support.
AAPA is interested in supporting organizations and individuals in research projects that explore and support the role of the PA in the changing healthcare landscape. AAPA’s Research Department has a wealth of research leadership, analytical capacity, literature and data about PAs and PA students as well as pertinent health workforce issues. How can we best help you?
To learn how AAPA can support your research project, send a project proposal containing purpose, methodology and other resources or organizations you will be working with. All proposed projects will be considered and reviewed. Interested researchers should email us their proposals.
Every year AAPA conducts a survey of PAs across the country. The Annual Physician Assistant Census provides us with the data for the Salary Report and the Census Report. The Census Report contains information about the distribution of the PA population. The current Census Report is available online now. Archived Census Reports are available exclusively to AAPA members.
The Salary Report contains detailed information about the compensation of PAs across the country and includes detailed compensation analysis by specialty, setting and years of experience. For more information on the Salary Report, visit our Salary Report information page.
The Annual Physician Assistant Census is currently in the data collection phase. The next Salary Report and Census Report are due to be published in the fall of 2013. For more information about taking the Annual Census, visit our Annual Census information page.
AAPA also maintains a PA Bibliography of publications that pertain to the PA workforce. The PA Bibliography and other literature resources can be found in the Resources tab.
