Who we are:

Dedicated to providing deployable trusted care around the world

Air Force Physician Assistants exemplify the diversity of their profession and are paving the way in several aspects of medicine. They are providing cutting-edge care to our Total Force, retired, and dependent beneficiaries across the globe. As PA’s, they have opportunities to practice their skills in a variety of specialties and roles. They can go on to attend doctorate awarding fellowships in Orthopedic Surgery, General Surgery, Emergency Medicine, and ENT. They are leading Aerospace research teams, caring for our aviators, building international health care systems and relationships and providing direct support for our Special Operations teams across the globe.


The Society of Air Force Physician Assistants (SAFPA) is a professional organization serving the needs of active duty, retired, and reserve Air Force physician assistants.‚Äč


The mission of SAFPA is to promote quality, cost-effective, and accessible health care and to promote the professional and personal development of Air Force physician assistants.

    AFPARC (L5OXO42G3 09AA) fulfills a portion of the 42G CMRP Cat II requirements and provides updates on key medical topics in the management of both civilian and military patients.

    Central Funding CMRP Track vs. CME Track

    Thank you for your interest in attending AFPARC 2022. 

    Those who are centrally funded NEED to attend the course to become current on their CMRPs. The goal is to have all PAs up-to-date on CMRPs in the next few years by providing TDY training RIPs directly to their leadership.  However, those who are not centrally funded will still have the advantage of getting several CMRPs checked off and receive CME credits for their attendance. 

    Central Funding CMRP Track:
    Those who are centrally funded will be separated into 4 groups.  Only those centrally funded can attend: Basic Medical Skills, Acute MSK/Ortho Management, and ABLS, and eFAST workshops.  From Tuesday through Friday your schedule will be prescripted and received on arrival at the course registration/check-in. 

    In the morning, you will attend a CMRP training workshop and medical readiness lectures in the afternoon. For workshops, please wear Air Force PT gear and athletic shoes.

    ABLS will require a separate $150 fee, members selected to attend will be sent an invoice.

    Please select the Centrally Funded option when signing up for the course - you may need to do this with your unit if using a GPC. Otherwise, collect your receipt and submit for reimbursement.

    Attendance of these workshops during AFPARC is MANDATORY for all Centrally Funded persons.

    Thank you and we hope to see you at AFPARC.
