AASPA - Who Benefits from AASPA

AASPA works tirelessly to enhance the role of the surgical PA in the peri-operative environment – and thereby your career, education and even your paycheck – through active marketing to surgeons/physicians, cost-effective CME, assistance with professional issues, networking opportunities and more.


AASPA gives students and pre-PA students an edge in becoming a surgical PA through enhanced knowledge of the profession, scholarships, opportunities for recognition, a mentoring program, resume reviews and more.

We were the first organization to offer a unique membership category for residents. We are proud to offer one of the most active and well-recognized programs for students interested in becoming PAs.


AASPA offers an effective avenue to recruit top-level surgical PA talent as well as resources on how PAs from a variety of specialties can decrease physician workloads, improve patient safety and enhance revenue streams.


AASPA offers effective, affordable support opportunities that get product recognition with our leadership and members who work directly with hospitals and surgeons to select surgical supplies and write scores of prescriptions weekly.
