There are two Student Representatives on our Board each year, one from each school. Student members are also welcome to join any committee in NMAPA. These are excellent opportunities to make a real difference in the future of the PA profession in New Mexico.
Students can attend the NMAPA Fall Conference at a low rate of $25 per day. Saturday is free for students which is when a special student session is scheduled as well as the Student Challenge Bowl! Be sure to save the date.
NMAPA provides two kinds of scholarships to current students.
The NM Academy of Physician Assistants Scholarship Fund is awarded to up to two UNM PA Students demonstrating active participation in UNM and NMAPA activities, and a desire to work in rural or underserved areas upon graduation.
NMAPA also awards one student from each PA School $400 to help cover expenses for attending the annual AAPA national conference. Contact the current NMAPA President if you will be representing your school at the national conference and are interested in this scholarship.
NMAPA strives to recognize outstanding PA students. In addition to the scholarships, leadership, and networking opportunities listed above, NMAPA is always looking for students to highlight in the quarterly newsletter. If you know an outstanding student (or if you are one!) contact the Chapter Administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org. Newletters are published in July, October, January, and April and distributed to all NMAPA members.
