Who We Are

Our Mission

Practicing Physicians of America (PPA) is a 501(c)(6) non-profit organization that supports the common business interests of its physician members and works to limit interference of the doctor-patient relationship by third parties in an effort to improve the medical profession.

We magnify the voice of the practicing physician.

Our message, #WeAreHuman, represents the human connection between physicians and their patients. By declaring that we are human, we affirm your right to care for your patients without burdensome time requirements, regulations, and administrative environments.


For Physicians, By Physicians.
