TAPA Awards Program

Each year, TAPA recognizes individuals who are shining stars in the PA profession. These individuals go above and beyond the call of duty to care for patients, represent the profession and train future PAs. Awards are given in the following categories:

  • PA of the Year
  • PA Student of the Year
  • Preceptor of the Year
  • Educator of the Year (new)
  • PA/Physician Team of the Year

Nominations are accepted from PAs, collaborating physicians, PA students and program faculty. Awards are presented at a celebration held in conjunction with TAPA’s annual fall conference, FallFest.

The Awards Committee seeks individuals who demonstrate professional accomplishment, professional involvement, community service and other qualities that promote the PA profession. To submit a nomination, individuals should fill out the nomination form and return it to the TAPA office.

This year, the deadline to submit nominations is July 31, 2020. To download an awards nomination form, click here.
