About PALH

For over 30 years, Physician Associates For Latino Health (PALH) has been an officially recognized caucus of the American Academy of Physician Associates (AAPA). The purpose of PALH is to render loyal and honest service to the medical profession and the public, to develop continuing medical or medically related education programs, and to promote the physician associate profession through the education of medical professionals and the general population. Furthermore, PALH strives to support the mission of the AAPA by increasing the diversity of the Academy. 

PALH is transitioning to use “physician associate” when possible, to reflect the 2021 AAPA House of Delegates resolution. PAs should continue to use “physician assistant” or “PA” as their official legal title in a professional capacity, particularly in clinical settings and with patients. For more information, please visit AAPA’s Title Change FAQs.
