The greatest MAPA member benefit is its advocacy to protect and promote PA practice in Minnesota. The more MAPA members we have, the better job we can do on your behalf.

Some of the other benefits of membership:


  • Effective lobbying for PA interests during every step of the state legislative process
  • The latest news and information on new legislation and regulations that affect MN PAs and their practices
  • PA representation to government agencies, health organizations, and to the AAPA
  • Access to members-only resources and information on the MAPA website
  • Exclusive access to premiere job listings
  • Student support through scholarships and networking at MAPA events
  • Networking: The Academy’s conferences, events and committee activities provide opportunities for PAs to meet professionally and socially
  • Public Education: The Academy actively promotes the concept of the PA as an important part of the healthcare team to the public and to key Minnesota employers
  • Leadership Opportunities: MAPA members are encouraged and supported to play an active role in the future of the PA profession
