Continuing Education Convention for PAs

There’s still time for Physician Assistants across the state to register for the Tennessee Academy of Physician Assistants (TAPA) 39th Annual FallFest Conference. The conference is being held October 5-9 at the Gatlinburg Convention Center in beautiful downtown Gatlinburg.

There will be a total of 38 Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits offered through one and two-hour workshops to refresh or enhance practicing skills. Physician Assistants will want to attend FallFest to learn about the newest advances in medicine, including the latest treatment guidelines and therapeutic advances. TAPA is also presenting three specialty blocks – endocrine, women’s health and dermatology – and many individual lectures specifically developed to assist PAs and PA students in preparing certification / recertification exams.
