PAVMT is the only national organization focused exclusively on expanding PA representation in this area of healthcare.
During this time of unrest and the national movement for justice reform we recognize that the BIPOC community, and particularly Black men, have been most directly impacted by the inequalities in the application and execution of the law. We condemn racism in any form and support the movement towards equality. This goal cannot be realized without significant, wide-spread reforms across the country.
We recognize, also, that BIPOC Americans have historically and consistently had poor access to healthcare resources and care. It is our belief that telemedicine has the power to be a great equalizer in the provision of healthcare from an access and equity perspective, especially for communities that are historically underrepresented and underserved.
As an organization, PAVMT has not yet determined how we can most directly address this continued crisis through our mission and organizational framework. We recognize that statements like these alone do not translate to action, but we are committed to real change and will share our intended actions and response publicly and with our membership at the nearest possible opportunity.
We advocate for the role of telemedicine within the PA profession, and the role of PAs in the broader field of telemedicine.
PAs are being denied fair and equal opportunities for telemedicine roles. Tell us about your experiences seeking telemedicine employment and being denied because you are a PA.
