Career Expo & Student Challenge Bowl

CAPACareers Expo
The Westin Carlsbad Resort & Spa
Saturday, October 8th, 2022
10:00am - 2:00pm 


CAPACareers Expo is targeted at early career PAs and PA students ready to jump into their next professional challenge. This group is exploring practice setting options, employment opportunities, fellowship programs, doctoral programs, and specialty experience. Though this is the inaugural year for the Expo, because it is being held concurrently with CAPACon in Carlsbad, CA, we expect great attendance, with participants coming from all communities throughout California! CAPACareers Expo will encompass a half-day of lecture topics, mock interviews, and employment booths for practices and companies throughout California. CAPA members will be able to attend the CAPACareers Expo for free. 

*Lecture and Mock Interview registration will open September 1st, 2022. 

California is home to 18 PA programs and over 1,600 PA students. This Career Expo will be advertised to each and every school. PA Students and Early Career PAs will be able to explore their options for employment and additional education opportunities, as well as utilize resources to enhance their careers.

Student Challenge Bowl
The Westin Carlsbad Resort & Spa
Saturday, October 8th, 2022

Directly following the CAPACareers Expo, CAPA will host the annual Student Challenge Bowl on the Ocean Blue Lawn at the Westin Carlsbad Resort. As in previous years, each PA school will assign a Team Captain and two other Team Members to represent their schools. Teams will face off against each other, two at a time in bracket format, culminating in a final winner.

The Student Challenge Bowl is now accepting team sign-ups from PA schools. All participants must be CAPA members in good standing.

Conference attendees, friends, and family are all welcome and encouraged to show their support for the students and the PA schools as they compete on Saturday afternoon.
