As the PA profession evolves, so does the language used to talk about it. The explosive growth of the profession, coupled with the continued modernization of PA laws, is rapidly changing the way you practice and the language we use to describe what you do. With the help of PA constituent organizations and individual PAs, AAPA created a reference guide for how to communicate about the profession in a way that reflects the realities of modern PA practice. Read it and share it with your peers and employers.
