AAPA 2020 Call for Submissions Is CLOSED

We are no longer accepting research submissions for AAPA 2020. 

March 23, 2020

Given the rapidly evolving situation with COVID-19, AAPA 2020 in Nashville, May 16-20, is canceled. This difficult decision was reached by the Board of Directors after careful analysis and consideration of all associated implications – most importantly, what is best for the health and safety of PAs and your patients, as well as students, exhibitors, sponsors and staff.

AAPA is working with our faculty to provide you with on demand CME courses and will share information when it becomes available.

We recognize that PAs are on the frontlines, preparing for and responding to this worldwide health crisis. AAPA volunteers and staff are working diligently to minimize any inconveniences of the cancellation and also meet the emerging and changing needs of PAs during this uncertain time.

Please visit this list of Frequently Asked Questions regarding the cancellation of AAPA 2020.
