2018 AAPA Salary Survey

Welcome, PAs and PA Students, to the Salary Survey!

When it comes to negotiating for better pay and benefits, it’s important to know where you stand. By taking the 2018 AAPA Salary Survey, you are providing the data that will help PAs advocate for the salary and benefits they deserve—based on national, regional and state salary data, broken out by specialty and subspecialty, practice setting, years of experience and more.

Data from this survey will be used to produce the annual AAPA Salary Report, which provides information about PA education, salary and benefits information for contract negotiation, including paid days off, professional development and expenses covered by employers, as well as vital data for state and federal legislative action. These data help show the real value of PAs, and are used extensively by PAs, state organizations, AAPA, employers and others. 
The 2018 AAPA Salary Survey should take no more than 15-20 minutes -- we promise! You can even save your work and return later if you are limited on time now.  Your responses will help the whole profession, including soon-to-graduate PA students.

Everyone who completes the 2018 AAPA Salary Survey, including nonmembers, will receive a FREE summary report of national-level PA compensation data, available in late summer 2018.

All PAs who complete the survey, and whose primary location of employment is in the U.S., will be automatically entered in a drawing to win one of twenty $50 Amazon gift cards. Odds of winning gift cards are approximately 1 in 500. No purchase necessary. The drawing will take place no later than April 1, 2018, and the winner will be contacted no later than April 15, 2018. For a list of winners, contact [email protected] after April 15, 2018. The drawing is sponsored exclusively by American Academy of PAs, 2138 Mill Road, Suite 1300, Alexandria, VA 22314.
