The AAPA advocates and educates on behalf of the profession; works to ensure the professional growth, personal excellence, and recognition of PAs; and is dedicated to enhancing their ability to improve the quality, accessibility, and cost-effectiveness of patient-centered health care. Currently, there are nearly 100,000 PAs and PA students and the profession is expected to double in size in the next decade.
