This page contains tools that physician assistants may use to create better understanding of their profession. Click here if you have general questions about Physician Assistants.

THE MESSAGE:
The unique team of physician and PA results in quality, cost-effective health care.

THE GOAL:
Heighten public awareness of the PA profession and its contributions to health care in Pennsylvania.

HOW:
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.
