NAPA Members and the Navy PA Community: Due to a lack of command funding across the Navy for Navy PAs to attend the 2019 AAPA Annual Conference in Denver from May 18-22, NAPA will NOT to hold it’s annual NAPA meeting there this year, but will still hold a Navy PA and NAPA member social gathering during the AAPA Conference. The annual NAPA meeting will be moved to Portsmouth, VA this year to be held in conjunction with the NAPA East Symposium on October 16-17, 2019. An estimated 30 or more PAs will be in attendance. For those who cannot attend or are on the west coast we plan to broadcast the symposium via NAPA Facebook live video for all to tune in.  The date and time is still to be determined. Please stay tuned for specifics, once finalized we will be emailing our members, as well as posting for all to see on our NAPA website and NAPA Facebook page. Thank you. 

NAPA Elections 2019: The following positions are taking nominations for 2019 NAPA leadership positions: NAPA President-Elect, NAPA Student Director, NAPA-East and NAPA-West President, Vice-President and Secretary. If you know (or are) a Navy PA who wants to make a direct impact, please nominate them by 01 May 2019 to be considered. Please see our Leadership Opportunities page here for more information.

Announcing 2015 Navy PA Symposium

The Naval Association of Physician Assistants plans to hold a NAPA Symposium later this year.

  • When - The date is tentatively October 15-17, 2015
  • Where - The location will be somewhere inside NMC Portsmouth
  • What - Lectures should focus on medical and PA career/promotion related information
  • Why - To gather Navy PAs for academic, career, and network building opportunities, provide Continuing Medical Education at a reduced cost in this era of financial austerity, and carry out NAPA's mission to the Navy and PAs.
  • Cost - To be determined. If there is a cost, will likely be $30 or less to help cover cost of CME administration and refreshments


Please contact our Symposium Coordinator at to volunteer or for more information.


We still need volunteers to fill critical roles at the Symposium.

  1. Lecturer Chair - Gather and manage all lecturers, who will all be volunteers. Schedule the sequence of the lectures. Lectures should focus on medical academic, PA, and Navy PA career related information.
  2. Registration Chair - Manage Brochure distribution and Registration information.
  3. Retired/Civilian Chair - Gathering retired and civilian PA individuals outside the NAPA community who wish to attend, keeping stats for AAR purposes.
  4. CME Chair - Coordinate approval for the CME hours (estimate 16-20).
  5. Logistics Chair - Coordinate logistics for room and A/V etc.
  6. Social Chair - Any fun event on a Saturday afternoon to wrap up the symposium. EG golf outing?
