The International Academy of Physician Associate Educators (IAPAE) is hosting their annual conference September 22 - 24 on the University of Kentucky campus. The association is made up of medical educators from around the world who are interested in finding and development common ground on curriculum, competencies and standards for physician assistant studies.
“It is a big milestone of ten years as an organization,” said David Fahringer, Associate Professor of Physician Assistant Studies at the UK College of Health Sciences. Educators from the following countries will be participating in the conference: Ethiopia, Ghana, India, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Liberia, South Africa, Syria, Tanzania, United Kingdom, USA, and Zambia.
“We are a growing organization,” said Fahringer. “The 11th Annual IAPAE Conference will be in Zambia.”
The conference will be recorded for the National PA History Foundation.
Poster presentations and exhibitor displays are open to the public in the Charles T. Wethington Building on the UK campus Friday, September 22 from noon to 1p.m.
