In recognition of National Physician Assistant (PA) Week—which takes place every year from October 6 to 12—Medicus Healthcare Solutions celebrates our country’s 100,000-plus clinically practicing PAs. We appreciate your commitment to the delivery of quality patient care, as well as your countless contributions and the important work you do all year long.
We are particularly grateful to the PAs who accept locum tenens assignments at hospitals, practices, health systems, and other healthcare organizations throughout the United States. Bringing your expertise and skills to communities in need of your services means patients who might otherwise go without care continue to receive quality medical care.
As you honor your profession and peers over the next seven days, consider employing some of the following tips, inspired by PAs Connect.
- Engage others. Do you have a suggestion for paying tribute to PAs? If so, share it with your peers and leaders, and enlist their help in implementing it.
- Promote the PA Week culture. A great way to do this is by starting a tradition to mark the Week every year. Be sure to carry it out wherever you are, whether you’re working locum tenens or in a permanent position.
- Recognize your peers. Make calls, send text messages, and/or email your fellow PAs to wish them a Happy PA Week. Let them know how much you appreciate them and their dedication to excellent patient care. Consider hosting a special potluck or make plans to go out for a celebratory meal.
- Get social. Tell everyone about PA Week on social networking sites—like Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. Share news, capture your celebrations, and remember to use “#PAweek” in your posts.
Medicus Healthcare Solutions is honored to represent PAs pursuing locum tenens practice. We thank you for everything you do and hope you have a wonderful week!
