PA Student Programs
TAPA is pleased to offer student-specific programming at FallFest. The Student Track will be held on Monday, Oct. 7. These sessions are specifically designed to prepare students for graduating and entering the PA workforce. A morning of lectures will be followed with two concurrent PA student workshops that are designed to give PA students hands-on experiences.
Monday evening, TAPA is pleased to host the 5th Annual Student Challenge Bowl. Modeled after the AAPA National Challenge Bowl, Monday night’s event will help Tennessee PA students prepare for their exams, certification and the National Challenge Bowl competition.

Each year, TAPA showcases poster presentations at FallFest. This gives PAs and PA students the opportunity to share their research with colleagues. Posters will be on display in the Exhibit Hall on Monday, Oct. 7 and Tuesday, Oct. 8. Authors will be present to talk about and answer questions regarding their work during breakfast from 7-8 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 8. Click here for submission guidelines.
