AAPA 2024 Call for Presentations

Are you a subject matter expert with a passion for sharing your knowledge? PAs want to learn from you at AAPA 2024! Complete the Call for Presentations application to be considered for CME faculty at AAPA 2024, May 18-22.


AAPA 2024 has different presentation options including hour-long lectures, hands-on workshops, and small, case-based interactive sessions. You can also submit a Fast-15 proposal to provide a quick, 15-minute guidelines update, with an additional 15 minutes for questions. Those with limited national speaking experience can submit a New to the Stage proposal and, if accepted, will be matched with a seasoned speaker to guide them through the faculty experience.

To ensure a balanced conference CME program, all submissions are reviewed and evaluated by a committee of your peers. The evaluation process is competitive; about half of the submissions are accepted.

If your presentation is selected, you will be informed by early 2024.
