It’s National PA week, and if you are a PA, MedCare Staffing would like to celebrate you! National PA Week is celebrated every year from October 6th-12th and is a time to recognize and celebrate the PA profession and its contributions to the nation’s healthcare. During PA Week, consider talking with a PA about what it is they do or visit The American Academy of PAs website to learn more about this fast-growing profession.
We know that not everyone has been treated by a PA, but there is a chance that you will be at some point in your life. In a primary care setting, PAs have been handling outpatient visits in an increasing number, increasing from 10% of visits to 15% from 200-2008, according to the AMA Journal of Ethics. With more than 123,000 PAs working across the country—according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the profession is expected to grow 31 percent between 2018 and 2028. This growth in the business helps to add incredible talent to our healthcare system and provide a unique experience for patients.
As a PA, you’ve followed your passion for helping others, improving care, and changing lives. If you are working as a locum tenens PA, you’re helping fill a critical need across the country—giving healthcare teams the support and relief where they need it the most and helping to create meaningful connections with patients along the way. Thank you for choosing this career, for your commitment to your practice and for the positive impact you have on patients’ lives!
If you’re a PA, thank you! We’re honored to partner with numerous locum tenens PAs with assignments every year and are inspired by the stories we gather from PAs, making a difference in the community. And lastly, we’re proud of the work we do to find matches between quality healthcare organizations and locum tenens PAs. It’s our job to give hospitals, clinics, labs, and other facilities the tools they need to care for communities—and help you reap the rewards of satisfying, flexible locum tenens work.
From everyone at MedCare Staffing to all the PAs across the country, THANK YOU. Happy National PA Week!
