Are you interested in becoming involved in the Maryland Academy of Physician Assistants?  It is very positive experience that few who have become involved regret.  Most members, after serving on the Board, realize the difference they have made for all the PAs in Maryland, members and non-members.

Interested, but

  • don't know what it entails
  • or how much time it would demand
  • or what qualifications are needed

We welcome the opportunity to meet and speak with you regarding the Board.  We also provide mentorship for all positions.  Come join us and experience our sense of accomplishment!
