​​RIAPA Mission

The RI APA’s mission is to provide the general membership of the Academy with a forum for informal assembly regarding the issues that relate to the physician assistant of Rhode Island.

We facilitate mutual assistance and support of physician assistants, health professionals, and health services by organizing and disseminating health care information through forums, panels, and other similar programs concerning the delivery and quality of health care services within Rhode Island. We also promote the profession to the general public, other health care professionals, and governmental bodies in Rhode Island.
