UKPA Hosts the 10th Annual IAPAE Conference

The International Academy of Physician Associate Educators (IAPAE) hosted 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.”

  Class of 2019 Wine Tasting Fundraiser-May 10th

The University of Kentucky Physician Assistant Class of 2019 will host our annual fundraising event, A Taste of Commonwealth. This event will be held at the Signature Club of Lansdowne on Thursday, May 10, 2018 from 6-9pm. The event will spotlight wine, craft brews, and food from local establishments in Kentucky. We will also hold a silent auction featuring items donated by retailers around the Bluegrass along with a "split the pot" raffle.

All proceeds from the event will benefit The New Hope Clinic of Owingsville and our end of program celebration. Our class selected The New Hope Clinic of Owingsville because this charity seeks to minister to the healthcare needs of the medically uninsured and under-insured people of Eastern Kentucky by bringing competent and compassionate health care to them. The New Hope Clinic is very important for the Owingsville area and our contributions are a small-stitch effort in helping them succeed to better our community.
