The University of Lynchburg’s Doctor of Medical Science (DMSc) and PAs in Virtual Medicine and Telemedicine (PAVMT) are pleased to announce a partnership that will allow PAVMT members to enroll in the DMSc’s Telehealth Certificate with a 10% tuition discount.
PAVMT and the DMSc found a mutual goal in their commitment to advancing the PA profession and equipping PAs for the future. PAVMT was established in 2018 to empower PAs to advance the use of virtual health. “We admire PAVMT’s work in helping PAs initiate and sustain a telehealth practice. Partnering with them in that mission was a natural fit,” said the University of Lynchburg School of PA Medicine Dean and DMSc founder, Dr. Jeremy Welsh, DHSc, JD, PA-C.
The Lynchburg DMSc’s Telehealth Certificate is a deep dive into telehealth best-practices and is designed for PAs who are currently practicing telehealth as well as those who want to start. The first course begins on January 4, 2021. There are 3 courses for the certificate that run consecutively for 12 weeks:
- Fundamentals of Telehealth
- Economics of Telehealth
- Legal Issues of Telehealth
"Lynchburg continues to set the standard in advanced PA education and training, and clearly understands the strategic importance of telemedicine in the evolving 21st-century healthcare space," said PAVMT Board Member and Past President, Desmond Watt, PA-C.
The tuition discount is a benefit available to all PAVMT members and an excellent return on membership dues, as the discount is more than the annual cost of belonging to PAVMT. Each course also offers up to 10 hours of AAPA approved Category 1 CME.
Anyone interested in participating is encouraged to apply today and attend a virtual information session on Wednesday, November 18 at 7 pm EST. Dr. Andrew Porter, DMSc, PA-C, the faculty member teaching the telehealth certificate courses, will give a picture of the course content as well as pertinent details such as the application process, tuition and discount breakdown, CME details, and more.
