Welcome PA Students!

If you are currently a Physician Assistant student or considering enrollment at one of Georgia’s five PA schools, the Georgia Association of Physician Assistants wants you to have free access to resources for scholarship, educational and leadership opportunities as you prepare to enter the PA profession.

GAPA Student Memberships are absolutely FREE during your entire period as a PA student and for six months after you graduate. If you are enrolled in Board-approved programs training PAs, you qualify for this membership level.

By joining GAPA you will receive a number of important benefits that can help you get a head start on your PA career:


As a Student member, you’ll have the opportunity to receive exclusive information on scholarship opportunities and will be notified of application deadlines. If you apply for and receive a scholarship, your achievement will be recognized by the entire GAPA membership!


Tap into student tracks (with student-friendly prices) at GAPA conferences that provide the continuing medical education you need. PA students say our hands-on workshops offer a real learning advantage in basic skills development. Plus, GAPA conferences have great networking opportunities and an unparalleled career center! And if you like a little competition, get ready to represent your school in GAPA’s Student Challenge Bowl!

Leadership Opportunities

GAPA Student members may be eligible for consideration as a student leader on the GAPA Board of Directors, as elected by your peers. GAPA student leaders develop critical leadership credentials that future employers value as well as participate in Board retreats and represent their schools in contributions to the GAPA newsletter and student blog.
