Summary of "Assessing the Impact of a Professional Development Program for PA Program Directors."

The growth of physician assistant (PA) programs nationally has stretched the available capacity of experienced PA program directors. To address this need, a professional developmental program was designed to provide new program directors with the knowledge, skills, and resources necessary to succeed in the role. This study sought to characterize the impact of program attendance over time. Data were collected from individuals representing 5 cohorts that participated in the annual Physician Assistant Education Association New Program Directors Retreat between 2011 and 2015.
