GW Physician Assistant Tolton Society

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 Barnett 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.

Student Achievements

Leadership and advocacy are an essential aspect of each program in Health Science. Many of our current and former students are leaders in their communities or professions, and their contributions are recognized through awards, scholarship, or service. Health Science students also engage in classroom-based and professional opportunities to shape the debate on many issues affecting work, health, and society. While the opinions expressed by our students are their own, we are extraordinarily proud of their ability to effectively participate in important national and regional discussions.
