The Association of Physician Assistants in Cardiology (APAC) is a professional organization for Physician Assistants who practice in Cardiology. Since recognition as a specialty organization in 2003, APAC has made considerable progress toward our goal of becoming the primary resource and advocate for all cardiology PAs. As a Constituent Organization of the AAPA, APAC collaborates with the Academy and actively participates in the House of Delegates at the AAPA annual meeting to assure representation of Cardiology PAs. APAC also works closely with the American College of Cardiology (ACC) and other national organizations to promote and advocate for increased utilization of PAs to provide high quality, cost-effective care to patients with cardiovascular disease.
To enhance the personal and professional growth of its constituent members and all Physician Assistants practicing in the Cardiology specialty through educational opportunities, community involvement, and political representation and advocacy.
The Association of Physician Assistants in Cardiology consists of Physician Assistants at all levels of their professional careers, ranging from PA students to clinically practicing PA’s, to those working in academia and beyond. APAC is largely supported through membership fees. Annual Membership is $50.00 for fellow members and $10.00 for student members. APAC encourages students to access the APAC website, where they can learn about careers in cardiology.
