Additional Information

APSPA is presenting at AAPA this year! 

Please join us for a thought provoking presenting on Cosmetic Medical Tourism by Erin Carroll PA-C, APSPA president.  In addition to those who work in plastic surgery, PAs who practice in emergency medicine/urgent care, hospital medicine, primary care/family medicine as well as infectious disease have likely cared for patients who have had cosmetic surgery outside of the US but have developed complications and require care here.  Learn about common complications, how to triage these patients and some helpful tips and tricks! If you haven't cared for someone in this situation yet, it likely isnt long until you do... so make sure you are prepared!

Consider joining fellow APSPA members at our annual board meeting and networking event to follow! Drinks and apps will be provided. See our website for more details and to register!
