James K. Tolton Student Society

Class of 2021 PA program students

The James K. Tolton Society is the GW Physician Assistant Programs' student chapter of our national professional organization, the American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA). We encourage all PA students to join AAPA as a student member and take part in its many activities. Professor Beattie serves as our faculty advisor to the Tolton Society and will assist you in registration, obtaining leadership roles, service activities, and establishing a National Medical Challenge Bowl team to compete at the annual PA conference. In addition, students are encouraged to participate in professional advocacy and many descend upon Capitol Hill to discuss issues confronting the PA profession with congressional representatives.
