NAPA Annual Spring CME Conference and General Membership Meeting
April 6-9, 2016
In keeping with our purpose statement of the Academy, our NAPA Annual Spring CME Conferences provide a loyal and faithful service to the medical profession and to the public by developing and enforcing continuing educational programs for Physician Assistants and the Academy membership. Traditionally, our lectures focus on primary care as well as specialty care topics. Earning Category I CME hours and enjoying the atmosphere with peers in our profession is the focus of the 4-day conference. NAPA strives to maintain a high quality conference including CME, meals, and entertainment at an affordable cost.
