Mark your calendars for IAPA's 2023 Fall CME Conference, scheduled for November 2 - 3, 2023. The IAPA CME Committee has worked hard to develop a diverse and engaging in-person educational program worth 18 AAPA Category 1 CME credits.*

Did You Know...

NPs, MDs and other APPs can often claim AAPA Category 1 CME credit as continuing education with their respective certification / licensing authorities. AAPA, the accrediting authority for IAPA's Fall CME Conference recommends that all non-PA APPs confirm with their certification/licensing bodies that the AAPA credit is accepted.

*This activity is pending review by the AAPA Review Panel. IAPA intends to apply for 17.0 CME Credits.

*One of our speakers provides their own accreditation, Overcoming the Challenges of Managing Obesity: Strategies for the Primary Care Setting: Partners for Advancing Clinical Education (PACE) has been authorized by the American Academy of PAs (AAPA) to award AAPA Category 1 CME credit for activities planned in accordance with AAPA CME Criteria. This activity is designated for 1.0 AAPA Category 1 CME credits. PAs should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation.
