To enhance the personal and professional growth of its constituent members and all Physician Associates practicing in the Cardiology specialty through educational opportunities, community involvement, and political representation and advocacy.
The Academy of Physician Associates (APAC) is a professional organization for Physician Associates who practice in Cardiology. Since recognition as a Specialty Organization of the American Academy of Physician Associates (AAPA) in 2003, APAC has made considerable progress toward our goal of becoming the primary resource and advocate for all cardiology PAs. 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.
