PA of the Year Nominations Sought


Each year, the North Dakota Academy of Physician Assistants (NDAPA) awards the distinction of North Dakota Physician Assistant of the Year.  The NDAPA would like to provide you with the opportunity to nominate a PA who works in your practice setting or community.


If you know a PA whom you would recommend as a candidate, please submit a letter of nomination that includes 

  • the nominee’s name
  • address, city, state, zip
  • telephone number (work or home)
  • reasons for your nomination.  
  • your name and contact information 

Please email your nomination letter to Terri Lang, NDAPA Executive Secretary at


Deadline for nominations: Wednesday, April 18, 2018


The nominations will be reviewed and voted upon by the NDAPA Board. The award will be presented at the NDAPA Spring Conference in Fargo, ND on Friday, May 4, 2018.


The Physician Assistant of the Year nominee must be a Physician Assistant who works or resides in North Dakota. You may feel this PA deserves recognition because they provide excellent patient care, are well respected by the medical community as well as their patients, and/or are considered to be an asset to your community and to the PA profession.


This might be someone who has been involved in medical education – in an academic setting, or by interactions with PA/NP students and/or their colleagues.  They might be dedicated to improving public health by involvement in community education programs in addition to the patient education they do every day in the office.


You might be aware of a Physician Assistant who is involved in humanitarian projects; a PA you feel is giving of themselves in the service of others, above and beyond their normal daily responsibility to their local patients but also to their community, a third world community, and/or their profession.


Thank you for taking the time to honor an exceptional PA and for your continued support for all Physician Assistants in North Dakota.
