    About Us

    Welcome to The Texas Gulf Coast Physician Assistant Association (TGCPAA). Established in 1985, a group of local PAs envisioned a PA group that would provide an opportunity to obtain CME, network & learn about job opportunities, and promote good will among fellow PAs in the greater Houston area.

    TGCPAA meets every other month (February, April, June, August, October, & December) in combination with a sponsored lecture and a TGCPAA business meeting. Due to ACCME guidelines, category I CME is not available at our regular meetings, however; every other year, TGCPAA hosts a CME Symposium for Advanced Practice Providers. TGCPAA members will receive a reduced rate member registration for the symposium.  Here members will be able to obtain a minimum of 7-hours of category I CME.  It's an excellent and inexpensive local option to obtain additional CME and network with other Houston area PAs.  

    Today, over 30 years later, TGCPAA continues the original mission set forth by our founders and have surpassed this vision with many other new opportunities.  TGCPAA participates regularly in Houston area philantrophic projects.  We have social events a couple of times a year where members and their families can enjoy a fun filled evening.  Our previous socials have included Yoga & Hops, Houston Astros, Houston Dynamo, Miller Outdoor Theater and Discovery Green Ice Skating.  All of these events have been fun and a great way to socialize with Houston area PAs. 

    The Texas Gulf Coast Physician Assistant Association is a wonderful avenue for growth and professional development.  Our members enjoy being part of an Association focusing on the education and advancement of the PA Profession.  We would love for you to be a part of this Association.  Feel free to email any of the leaders to find out more information.
