Our Mission: To promote the utilization of Physician Assistants in the delivery of exceptional care to people with cancer and related disorders.

The Association of Physician Assistants in Oncology (APAO) is a non-profit 501(c) specialty organization affiliated with the American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA) that consists of physician assistants working in the field of oncology.  It is the only national organization representing PAs specializing in oncology.  Our members work in all oncology disciplines and practice in both clinical and research settings.





APAO is proud to partner with Horizon CME, providers of Advanced Practice Providers Oncology Summit. Through our joint partnership, APAO will assist with the development and implementation of evidence-based live and enduring medical education activities that aim to enhance the knowledge, competence, and performance of APPs in cancer care.
