Reclaim your right to practice medicine.
It’s time for physicians to reclaim responsibility for patient health — and for our own health.
Our Mission is to help you:
Our mission is to stand up for your right to care for your patients. Together, we can re-claim our noble profession and enjoy caring for others.
We are fighting, through patient safety and physician autonomy, to develop patients’ trust. The physician’s oath serves to protect patients’ lives and livelihoods alike.
Third-party payers, government, hospitals, and non-physician staff disrupt the patient-physician relationship. We’re here to magnify your voice.
We’re standing with physicians.
The mission of PPA is to protect the ability of all practicing physicians to serve as their patients’ primary health care advocate and to confront unnecessary and overbearing regulation that limits any physicians’ ability to serve their patients. Meet our board of directors – actively practicing physicians standing in the gap with you.
