As you may have heard by now, myPAresource has entered into a collaborative relationship with the AAPA to help provide some benefits for their Pre-PA applicants. Never before has the AAPA provided Pre-PA students with resources to help them get into PA school, as the benefits they have previously offered were geared more towards accepted PA students who were already in school.

Below are is a list of reasons why, as a Pre-PA student, you should consider joining the AAPA:

  • Discounts on Pre-PA Services/Resources- As we mentioned above, the AAPA has started to focus more on their Pre-PA members and helping them get into PA school. As an AAPA member, you’ll get EXCLUSIVE discounts on services from myPAresource, the PA Platform, PA School Prep, Kaplan GRE Prep, the Applicant’s Manual of Physician Assistant Programs, and the PA School Interview Guide. You’ll also get discounts to resources once you get accepted and become a PA student!

  • Applicant Timeline and Checklist- This checklist will help keep you on track while you’re getting ready for the upcoming CASPA application cycle. This way you’ll know EXACTLY what you need to have done and by when to ensure that you apply early and that you have collected all of the necessary information, paperwork, and references to submit to CASPA to give you an edge.

  • Subscription to JAAPA (The Journal of the American Academy of Physician Assistants)- JAAPA is a monthly journal that is mailed right to your door and includes the newest, most up-to-date research and guidelines to help expose you to your future profession. It’s never too early to get learn about those disease processes you’ll later spend HOURS learning about in school. Plus, it’s FREE!

  • The AAPA Huddle- an EXCLUSIVE online community/forum for AAPA members to ask questions, connect with other members, find a mentor, discuss challenges, network, and even find mentors!

  • Support Your Future Profession- Probably one of the main benefits of joining the AAPA is supporting your future profession. Not only will your membership dues help support efforts to help expand our profession, but they’ll also help raise awareness of PAs, further instilling the obvious need for physician assistants within the medical community.

  • Include AAPA Membership on your Application- being involved is a GREAT addition to ANY Pre-PA student’s application! And what better organization to be involved with than the AAPA??? Show schools that you are serious about becoming a physician assistant and prove how long you have been working to be a part of this incredible profession. Being an AAPA member will further help set you apart from other applicants who are not currently members.

As if being involved with the largest organization that represents your future profession isn’t enough, we hope the benefits listed above give you some insight into why you should consider becoming an AAPA member as a Pre-PA student.
