ABOUT US

ASEPA is the official constituent chapter of the American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA) representing PAs in the specialty of Endocrinology.

The organization was founded by three Endocrine PAs in 1999. In 2000, ASEPA was awarded formal recognition as a specialty chapter of the AAPA and gained non-profit organization status.

MEETINGS

 

ASEPA members meet twice a year at the following conferences: AAPA and AACE. We also meet informally at the MEDS East and MEDS West conferences.

 

Throughout the year, board members communicate frequently via email and conference calls. 

We are dedicated to the education, advancement, and placement of PAs in the field of Endocrinology. This will further provide enhanced accessibility to quality care with the current and future projected nationwide shortages of board certified Endocrinologists.

Additionally, ASEPA will continue to establish alliances with endocrine-related organizations to strengthen the PA / Endocrinologist team.

Our Mission Statement - The American Society of Endocrine Physician Assistants (ASEPA) is a professional medical organization dedicated to Endocrine education and the advancement of PAs in Endocrinology to provide increased access to quality patient care.
