SAAAPA Origins and Structure
The involvement of physician assistant students in the American Academy of Physician Assistants has been valued and encouraged since the Academy was founded in 1968 by several students at Duke University. Since then, students have had an influential voice in the Academy's direction, serving in important leadership positions.
The student academy has its own structure within the AAPA, starting with PA students at each PA educational program, whether organized as student societies or student contacts.
The PA Student Society is formed by each new class of Marietta College PA Students. The group works to promote the physician assistant profession. Attached are excerpts from The Student Academy of the American Academy of Physician Assistants Student Society Handbook explaining the function of the society, etc.
