Welcome to the Veterans Caucus, a recognized affiliate caucus of the American Academy of Physician Associates (AAPA)

The Veterans Caucus is made up of people who care.

The Caucus represents Physician Associates (PAs) who are veterans of the Uniformed Services.

Many of our members continue to serve our country in the active, reserve, or guard components.

We also have many affiliate (non-military) members who also support our goals.


Mission Statement: Advancing Veteran education, health, and quality of life through mentorship, investment into Physician Associate students, allied health professionals, and our US and international collaborative partners.

Vision Statement: The Veterans Caucus will serve as the most trusted partner for Veteran health and Veterans pursuing PA education by leveraging community and international philanthropy to positively impact both Veterans and kindred associates’ lives.

Values: Integrity, Stewardship, Advocacy, Service, Teamwork, Diversity, and Compassion.
