MedPage Today(R) Continuing Medical Education Activities Now Offer AAPA Credit for Physician Assistants

LITTLE FALLS, N.J., Oct. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- MedPage Today, the innovative source of medical news that provides real-time coverage and continuing medical education (CME) credit to physicians and other clinicians, now provides free AAPA Category I CME credit to physician assistants (PAs) who complete CME activities on

The American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA), with a membership of more than 40,000, is the only national organization to represent all physician assistants in all medical and surgical specialties. Founded in 1968, the Academy works to promote quality, cost-effective healthcare and the professional and personal growth of PAs. For more information about the Academy and the PA profession, visit the AAPA's website:

The AAPA has collaborated with MedPage Today to issue PA credit for all educational activities on The organization has determined that MedPage Today's content meets the educational standards that are part of the AAPA's Standards for Programs Designated for AAPA Category I CME Credit, owing to the joint sponsorship of MedPage Today's activities with the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, an ACCME-accredited CME provider.

The agreement with the AAPA permits MedPage Today to display the AAPA's approval language and logo on each educational activity. Certificates of credit that are issued to PAs who complete posttests for MedPage Today courses bear these official elements as well.

"Physician assistants play an integral role in the delivery of healthcare, and I am especially pleased that MedPage Today can now offer AAPA CME credit to these medical professionals," said Robert Stern, President and CEO of MedPage Today. "Each year, PAs must earn a certain number of CME hours in order to maintain their licenses, just like physicians. We are delighted that MedPage Today can help PAs satisfy their licensure requirements by offering timely and relevant educational programs in a wide range of therapeutic areas."

Stern also commented that MedPage Today's booth at the recent AAPA meeting was well visited by attendees who requested more CME activities for PAs. "The overwhelming response to our educational programs by the PA community is what prompted us to seek approval to offer AAPA CME credit. We are always looking to expand our clinician readership and drive participation in our educational activities, and this presented a wonderful opportunity to extend our reach to the PA community," Stern added.
