Welcome to the 
Rhode Island Academy of Physician Assistant’s website.

Hello Everyone,

My name is Emma Banks and I am the current president of the Rhode Island Academy of Physician Assistants.  We are a professional organization that serves the PAs of the state of Rhode Island.  This is an exciting year for us, as we are celebrating our 40th anniversary as an organization.  I am honored to represent all of you and want thank you for being members or welcome you to join if you haven't already. 

This year, we will continue to offer CME events, celebrate our profession during PA week in October and monitor PA legislature as it applies both to practicing PAs and the patients we serve.  Please feel free to use the many links and resources on our website and contact me with any questions or concerns.

Thank you!

Emma Banks PA-C
