FallFest 2020 – Oct. 5-9, 2020
TAPA is looking forwarding to hosting PAs from across the state and nation at our 44th Annual FallFest continuing medical education (CME) conference. The conference will be held Monday, Oct. 5 through Friday, Oct. 9 at the Gatlinburg Convention Center, located at the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park (GSMNP) – the most visited national park in the United States.
TAPA’s CME Committee is hard at work planning a terrific agenda with top-notch speakers. Join us in October to learn about the newest advances in medicine, including the latest treatment guidelines and therapeutic advances. Many individual lectures are specifically developed in accordance with the NCCPA Content Blueprint in order to assist PAs and PA students in preparing for the NCCPA certification/recertification exam, so we hope you will find the agenda beneficial to your practice. And with an agenda being planned to offer up to 44 CME credits, you can quickly earn those Category I CME credits needed to renew your NCCPA certification.
If you haven’t been to FallFest in several years, we hope to see you this year. If you come to FallFest each year, TAPA looks forward to hosting you again as you make new memories and visit your favorite places.
TAPA is pleased to once again offer programming specifically geared toward PA students. Join us on Monday, Oct. 5 for the Student Track. The day will begin with student-specific lectures in the morning, followed with hands-on workshops in the afternoon. Workshop slots are limited, so register early to get your top choice.
The day will conclude with TAPA’s Annual Challenge Bowl, where teams from PA programs from across the state will compete against one another and show off their clinical knowledge. Click here to download the rules, and click here to register a team.

Posters are displayed Monday through Wednesday, and authors are present to talk about and answer questions regarding their work during breakfast from 7-8 a.m. on Tuesday morning.
