The APACVS recognizes that we have a growing number of new PAs entering the specialties but also have a significant need for more. Barriers, both real and artificial, have been created to make entering the specialties particularly difficult. 


We have been increasingly aware of entry to the workforce issue for PAs in cardiac, thoracic and vascular surgery. APACVS is martialing its talent and has established a task force to develop resources for PAs that are new to practice or just new to practicing cardiac, thoracic and vascular surgery.  To view some of these resources, please click on the topics below:
