Course Faculty
Our review course is developed and provided by experienced PA educators with an average of more than 10 years in PA education. We know what information PAs need to be successful.

Examination Analyses
We offer our course attendees the unique opportunity for individual analyses to help guide PANCE/PANRE preparation. At the end of each of the first three days, a 100 question examination is offered. All participants who complete the three examinations are provided a comprehensive performance analysis. This analysis includes the level of performance in each of the NCCPA organ systems and skills areas. In addition, upon completion of the exam, each of our attendees is provided a comprehensive answer key for all 300 questions which includes full explanations for each of the options, both correct and incorrect.

CME Credit  This activity has been reviewed and is approved for a maximum of 31.50 AAPA Category 1 CME credits by the AAPA Review Panel. PAs should claim only those credits actually spent participating in the CME activity. 

This activity was planned in accordance with AAPA CME Standards for Live Programs and for Commercial Support of Live Programs.
