Wisconsin Academy of PAs (WAPA)
Since 1976, PAs have been improving patient outcomes and moving healthcare forward right here in Wisconsin through the Wisconsin Academy of Physician Assistants (WAPA). There are more than 2,600 PAs practicing in Wisconsin today—we diagnose illness, develop and manage treatment plans and often serve as the principal healthcare professional for patients.
We are passionate about patient-centered care. We are ready to support each other in our careers and promote the profession. We are excited to share our expertise with the state’s medical community and fill the healthcare needs of our region. We are WAPA.

Ask the Professional Practice Team
What is the rightful scope of your practice? What do the laws really say about supervisory roles, specialty practice, insurance providers, employer contracts and prescriptive authority? Ask our team of experts.
PAs now carry a greater regulatory and administrative burden that no longer fits with the current health care climate. These outdated laws are pushing PAs out of Wisconsin and decreasing patients’ access to care. The CARES Act removes those barriers and helps PAs practice to the full extent of their training and education.
