The unique team of physician and PA results in quality, cost-effective health care.
Heighten public awareness of the PA profession and its contributions to health care in Pennsylvania.
Every PA has a chance to represent the profession to his or her community and its physicians, hospitals, legislators and media. This can be as simple as maintaining an informative relationship with your state representative or a member of your hospital’s board before professional changes happen. Be the expert that you are by providing education on a timely health topic with the media or by participating in a planned PSPA program.
A NEW OPPORTUNITY:
In the summer of 2008, the Pennsylvania Society of Physician Assistants established the Employment Sub-Committee under the Public Relations and Education Committee to explore the significance of AAPA’s salary survey which ranks Pennsylvania as 50 th in the country. The committee devised a plan to offer grants to PAs, PA Educators, and PA students who are interested in researching employment issues involving physician assistants in Pennsylvania. The PSPA will provide up to $2,000 per fiscal year in varying amounts not to exceed $1,000 for each individual project. Please click here for the application
