Sports & Orthopaedic Specialists PAs are valuable advanced practice providers used in clinical and surgical settings throughout the practice. While PA Week has recently come to a close, we continue to celebrate this incredible group of PAs. 

According to the American Academy of PAs, National PA Week is celebrated annually October 6-12. The week recognizes the PA profession and its contributions to the nation’s health.

This week is also an opportunity to raise awareness and visibility of the profession. Before it was a weeklong event, National PA Day was first celebrated on October 6, 1987, in honor of the 20th anniversary of the first graduating class of PAs from the Duke University PA program. October 6 is also the birthday of the profession’s founder, Eugene A. Stead, Jr., MD. Now the profession is 50 years strong!
