IAPA has set an example for me as to what a great provider looks like. It is my hope that I will be able to emulate that when I am a practicing PA.

As the main driver of legislative changes for PA practice, IAPA has contributed to tremendous improvements in our ability to provide efficient, high-quality healthcare for our patients. This includes increasing PA to physician ratios, reducing chart review requirements, improving drug prescribing policies, and eliminating state restrictions on performing sports physicals on high school athletes.
