New this year at PSPA, the Leadership Forum is an opportunity for Pennsylvania’s PA leaders and aspiring leaders to gather and share ideas. If you’d like to learn more about leadership opportunities or network with leaders, then be sure to attend this year’s Leadership Forum on Wednesday from 1:45 – 4:30 pm. The Leadership Forum is open to all attendees.
If you are currently a PA student, you do not want to miss this event! With separate tracks for first year and second year students (we know you have different needs!), everyone can gain valuable information for their future in the PA profession. These sessions will give participants a chance to learn from some of the best practicing PAs and “pick their brains” on a variety of topics. Whether you’re preparing to go out on rotations or preparing to take your boards and practice “real medicine,” there’s something for everyone!
The Faculty Forum is an opportunity for Pennsylvania’s PA faculty to gather and share ideas.
