The Mississippi Academy of Physician Assistants (MAPA) is hosting its Annual Conference at Biloxi, MS May 20-21.
The program will be held at the beautiful South Beach Hotel on the beach at Biloxi, Mississippi, sbbiloxihotel.com.
MAPA invites Physician Assistants from Mississippi and elsewhere to learn about and review the important responsibility it is to maintain controlled substance prescribing authority. We welcome the students at MC as well as any practicing PA’s in the state to secure training at this AAPA and MS Board of Medical Licensure approved program.
Our recurrent Controlled Substance Education Program is one day CME event developed to satisfy the State Board of Medical Licensure’s requirement that all PAs, “applying for controlled substance prescriptive authority must complete a Board approved educational program . . .” which this program qualifies. Also, to maintain this prescriptive authority PA’s in Mississippi must annually insure that, “10 hours of CME must be related to the prescribing of medications with an emphasis on controlled substances.” This will be achieved on May 20th. Our Annual Conference will be the following day and comprise of 10 hours of general CME topics. This is also the time that the annual MAPA Board Meeting takes place.
