WHAT IS PALH?

PALH is an officially recognized caucus of the American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA). The purpose of PALH is to render loyal and honest service to the medical profession and the public, to develop continuing medical or medically related education programs, and to promote the physician assistant profession through the education of medical professionals and the general population. Furthermore, PALH strives to support the mission of the AAPA by increasing the diversity of the Academy.

The following are some of the ways in which PALH is working to meet your needs:

  • Development and implementation of “asociado médico” as a uniform translation of “physician assistant”.
  • Sponsorship of CME opportunities on Hispanic/Latino topics at the AAPA Annual PA Conference.
  • Support of PA students through the PALH.
