We live in interesting times; the practice environment continues to change as we work to meet the demands of health reform and ever diminishing health care dollars while continuing to provide great care to patients. Employed physicians and PAs face a unique set of challenges. Fortunately, the OMA is here to help employed physicians and PAs meet those challenges through a newly-created Hospital and Health System Based Physician and PA Section.
This section was created for you, the employed physician or physician assistant. It will be whatever you want it to be. The OMA, though, envisions the section taking on the following:
- Supporting and enhancing your practice environment and helping you provide the best possible patient care
- Developing advocacy positions specific to employed physicians and PAs
- Creating OMA programming and resources designed to meet the needs of employed physicians and PAs
- Creating a forum for employed physicians and PAs to come together to both network and discuss the challenges of practicing in a hospital or health system setting as well as potential solutions
Together, section members can not only meet the challenges of the changing practice environment, but thrive as physicians and PAs and members of the hospital/health system community.
