About Us

APAPP is the first association solely focused on Advanced Practice Providers (APPs) working in the realms of pulmonary medicine. For the first time, Nurse Practitioners and Physician Associates can join together under one membership to work towards a common goal of excellence in pulmonary medicine. APAPP recognizes the void in standards of education and training of APPs who choose to work in pulmonary medicine. Our goal is to create a home for pulmonary APPs and close the education gap by providing Fellowship and Certification opportunities. Become a member and watch us grow!

Our Mission

Promote excellence in the field of pulmonary medicine by providing education, networking, and support for Advanced Practice Providers.

Our Vision

Create the definitive platform to enable pulmonary APPs achieve their full professional potential.
