The Maine Association of Physician Assistants was incorporated on April 1, 1977, as a nonprofit organization. MEAPA is representative of the physician assistants employed within the State of Maine, and its primary objective is to enhance quality medical care to the people of Maine through a process of continuing medical education to the membership, other health care workers, and the general public.
The Maine Association of Physician Assistants is open to communities of all backgrounds and is committed to providing exceptional and equitable care for our patients.
We recognize the inequalities and injustices that occur to patients and hope to eliminate that sense of hostility by amplifying their concerns and maintaining values of trust, respect, accountability, and compassion. MEAPA does not discriminate against healthcare workers, learners, and patients from diverse backgrounds that include but are not limited to race (including historical traits defined by protective hairstyles or traditional wear), gender identity, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, physical abilities, or religious and spiritual beliefs. We embrace all and hope to enhance the cultural awareness amongst providers to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion for our patients.
