Continuing Medical Education

The NCAPA has become a leader in offering peer-led, peer-driven, quality continuing medical education. Starting in 1976 with our first “beach conference,” our in person educational offerings have grown to two annual conferences, a number of regional workshops held throughout the year in North Carolina, and online educational opportunities available on demand, anytime, anywhere.

For information on national PA certification requirements, please visit the NCCPA website or email nccpa@nccpa.net or call NCCPA at (678) 417-8100.


Annual CME Conferences

NCAPA hosts a Winter Conference in February, held in the Triangle area of North Carolina. The focus is on core medical knowledge and provides a review of all organ systems based on the PANRE Exam blueprint. The conference usually includes between 27-31 credits of Category 1 CME, as well as additional workshops. A Poster Session to highlight PA scholarship and innovation is also held at this time, in conjunction with the Winter Conference. Winter conference attendees are offered a wide variety of knowledge and professional development opportunities – a great way to begin a new year!

  • You can purchase the study materials from our most recent Winter Conference on a flash drive, with full color images of the slide presentations, or printed in a binder (non-color). The material is worth between 27-31 credits of Category 2 CME. The cost is $75 for either /$50 for current members. Please contact us if you are interested at 919.479.1995 or email alexis.perry@ncapa.org.

NCAPA also hosts an Annual Summer Conference, held in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. You might be asking why a North Carolina organization holds its annual conference in a different state. Our conference attendees love a beach venue and the Kingston Plantation in Myrtle Beach is the only place we’ve found that can accommodate our entire conference, which includes five days of general sessions, a number of workshops, a large exhibitor hall, as well as over 1,000 attendees and guests. PAs and NPs travel from all over the country to access our top quality CME while still enjoying plenty of opportunities for beach activities and family time. The conference usually includes 27-30 credits of Category 1 CME, as well as additional credits available through workshops. It’s a week you don’t want to miss!


Regional CME Workshops

Regional workshops are held throughout North Carolina. PAs from across the state develop and review the content and identify topics of interest to PAs and NPs. Prior topics have included joint injections, suturing, and pharmacology. Find out what workshops will be in your area here.
