There are many reasons, but most importantly because we do the following...

Provide legislative advocacy for ALL Colorado PAs.

Offer community health education projects & continuing education for PAs.


Help ensure proper regulation and utilization of PAs in Colorado.


Promote the PA profession to Colorado's lay and medical community.

We embrace the strength of our members and constituent and partner organizations to speak with one voice for the profession and work together to transform health.


A PA is a nationally certified and state licensed medical professional

Why I Became a PA

"The length of time in schooling, the cost of schooling, the level of autonomy, the ability to change specialties, respect from staff / peers, annual salary, and training under the medical model are just a few reasons why becoming a PA is the most appealing option to me compared to the other provider roles and allied health fields."

Why Your Job as a PA Matters

A commitment to caring is the foundation of the physician assistant profession – and has been since the profession began. As patient advocates and educators, PAs help people use the health care system more efficiently and effectively.
