  1. Physician Associate, provide associate care. Medical Care Practitioner provide medical care. Physician Associate is an associate of the physician Medical Care Practitioner is a Practitioner of Medicine Physician Associate opens a physician associate practice Medical Care Practitioner opens a Medical Care Practice Physician Associate has an Associate degree Medical Care Practitioner has a Medical degree Am I right?
  2. How could that be? NCCPA and PAEA says we are the No.1 Profession and everything is all good!?
  3. Yes! I think that is best response, especially when the votes are so close. When the votes are so close, they should've go by the WPP's recommendation. The one million report holds more weight when the votes are evenly split. I am afraid this could be the down fall of PAFT. PAFT was not known for "playing safe" If we want to play safe, we would just listen to AAPA, NCCPA, PAEA, ARCPA. What is the point of having PAFT?
  4. Why wasted 11 years, should've change last time when the 100 leaders sign the petition to change to associate.
  5. There is a poll going on PA title change Facebook group. This is a very informed group on title change. The votes are actually pretty close and MCP is doing well so far, consider it is a such young title with no promotion. https://www.facebook.com/groups/315595819747588
  6. I think if the vote of the board was mostly an even split, they should make their final decision based on the WPP's recommendation. Votes/surveys among members are important but I think the WPP report should add another 20% of votes towards MCP. If not, why even spent a million dollar for a branding company?
  7. @sas5814 Could you explain how PAFT came to the conclusion of endorsing Physician Associate? I am just very curious. I am still waiting to hear good things about Physician Associate, so I can fully behind it.
  8. What I don't understand is that over at the Huddle, the opposed Title change article "The PA title Is a change the best way forward?" is getting a lot of praise even by Physician Associate supporters, just because the authors do not agree MCP should be the title, but at same time the authors were opposing a title change. So NO to MCP and NO to Physician Associate. Basically a slap in the face to 90% of PAs.
  9. I am sure we can also come out with 115 reasons why the PA profession is dying and getting our butt kicked by the NPs.
  10. This one got me scratch my head as well. Why are we worrying about Dutch PAs? In reality they have nothing to do with us. Do American MDs worrying about Dutch MDs? American RNs worrying about Dutch RNs? But Apparently, we should worry about Dutch PAs!
  11. A pro-title change article: The Cost of not changing our title - written by a PA student https://journals.lww.com/jaapa/Fulltext/2021/05000/The_cost_of_not_changing_our_title.2.aspx The counterpoint article : The PA title Is a change the best way forward?- written by 2 PhD PAs and a PA with probably 30+ years of experience. https://journals.lww.com/jaapa/Fulltext/2021/05000/The_PA_title__Is_a_change_the_best_way_forward_.1.aspx Great article by Scott Burns, a student who is pro-title change. He was brave to take on the challenge. It was 3 on 1. Not fair in my opinion, bu
  12. LAWPA, I suggest get your fellow students to speak up ASAP. If you don't want to be stuck with this outdated title for the rest of your career, the next 20 days is the key. Tell all your friend to participate, email your state organizations about title change. Your professors, PAEA, and NCCPA will only tell you the good things, but here we keep it real. The Truth is you are not an assistant. You will have way more responsibility than your job title indicates. You will be doing 70% of physician's work, if not 100%.
  13. I can't believe we still have to convince people assistant does not describe what we do. The only thing we assist is physician's bottomline in most cases.
  14. @sas5814 Is PAFT doing anything about it? I know they are pro-title change. I think PAFT should be make anther official statement about pro-title change, just to get some more attention and awareness. We got less than a month left. If we failed again, we will probably have to wait another 10 years. That is if we still exist...
  15. I thought we are the No.1 profession and OTP is going so well in each state...base on what I heard on Huddle. What happened?!
