NMAPA Annual Primary Care Conference



It is with great sadness that the New Mexico Academy of Physician Assistants announces the annual fall conference originally scheduled for September 10th-12th has been cancelled due to the ongoing COVID pandemic restricting group gatherings.  This was our 40th year of hosting this important event and I can assure you that our CME team is motivated to make our 41st even better.  We have reserved September 24th-26th 2021. Please continue to monitor this website as we will update our agenda.  We hope to invite our previously scheduled speakers.
