Join VAPA July 21-26, 2019 at the Hilton VA Beach Oceanfront Hotel for Sun, Fun and CME!  

Earn Category 1 CME credits while enjoying a family summer vacation! In support of the Virginia Academy of Physician Assistants’ mission, the focus of this year’s conference is to provide Physician Assistants and other providers with current medical information that will reinforce their knowledge base and introduce new concepts and clinical practice skills, through a cost-effective, evidence-based, and diverse educational program.  

Your full registration fee includes continental breakfast each morning, refreshment breaks, and lunches, as well as access to seminars, exhibits, and events as noted on the brochure and agenda.  Registration badges are required for admission to all conference events. There is a guest attendee registration rate available, should a spouse, guest or family member wish to join you at conference meals or audit the sessions (no credit will be given.)



The Hilton Virginia Beach Oceanfront hotel is the annual host for our conference. Due to the time of year, size of the conference and popularity of the location, the block of VAPA rooms sells out quickly. Staff cannot add or guarantee rooms. Reservations can be made by calling 1-800-HILTONS and mentioning the Virginia Academy of Physician Assistants. You can also book online here.

Room rates range from $229 per night to $395 per night.  Taxes and parking are not included.
