American Academy of Physician Assistants

PARTI

Physician Assistants Research Team Initiative (PARTI) members take short surveys and participate in meetings, conference calls, task teams and other activities as needed.

AAPA invites you to the PARTI!

You can help change the way AAPA attends to the needs of its members — and the patients they serve — by sharing your experiences and opinions as a member of the Physician Assistants Research Team Initiative. 

Your ideas and opinions matter 

We're looking for 50 to 100 PAs for PARTI, a new effort where members engage in short research projects, using surveys and qualitative research techniques; identify and propose topical areas suitable for research and surveys; and participate in meetings, conference calls, task teams and other activities. PARTI is designed to connect AAPA research one-on-one with PAs. As we move forward, we want to know that we are on point with what PAs are thinking and finding relevant and applicable. This is your chance to make your voice heard. 

Your commitment matters

You will normally receive 3-5 minute surveys about AAPA research and developments to complete every few weeks, along with various other opportunities. We ask that you commit to at least completing the surveys. We've had PARTI members help develop the Annual Survey (which produces the annual Salary Report) and become active bloggers for AAPA. There are many more opportunities looking ahead as well.

Quick overview

  •  One year commitment 
  •  Panel for qualitative and directional input for AAPA
  •  Online forum for PA discussions 
  •  All materials and concepts shared are confidential
