Who we are:

Dedicated to providing deployable trusted care around the world

Air Force Physician Assistants exemplify the diversity of their profession and are paving the way in several aspects of medicine. They are providing cutting-edge care to our Total Force, retired, and dependent beneficiaries across the globe. As PA’s, they have opportunities to practice their skills in a variety of specialties and roles. They can go on to attend doctorate awarding fellowships in Orthopedic Surgery, General Surgery, Emergency Medicine, and ENT. They are leading Aerospace research teams, caring for our aviators, building international health care systems and relationships and providing direct support for our Special Operations teams across the globe.


The Society of Air Force Physician Assistants (SAFPA) is a professional organization serving the needs of active duty, retired, guard, and reserve Air Force physician assistants.


The mission of SAFPA is to promote quality, cost-effective, and accessible health care and to promote the professional and personal development of Air Force physician assistants.
