AASPA works tirelessly to enhance the role of the surgical PA and thereby enhance your career through education, networking opportunities and assistance with professional issues. AASPA also acts as a unified voice on surgical PA issues.

As a PA working in surgery, emergency medicine or critical care, you have a lot to deal with – patient care, CME requirements, changes in reimbursement rules, increasing job competition and more.

To build your career and strengthen the surgical PA profession, we encourage you to join the AASPA. We offer a unique membership benefits program, including discounts on hotels, travel, shopping, and more. One purchase using this program often pays for a year's membership dues! Many employers will reimburse your dues, and if not they are a great tax write-off.
