The Florida Academy of Physician Assistants is pleased to announce its partnership with the Florida Medical Association (FMA), Florida Academy of Family Physicians (FAFP) and Florida Osteopathic Medical Association (FOMA) to advocate for team-based healthcare delivery in the Sunshine State. These groups have vowed to work together to actively promote patient-centered, physician-led teams.

In a recently issued press release, FAPA President Ricardo Morales, PA-C, remarked, “The goal is to create a team-based approach to healthcare while realizing the leadership value of physician-led collaboration in medicine. Physician assistants have a long history of providing excellent care in conjunction with their physician partners.”

This collaboration is similar to those that have been achieved via the development of a joint consensus statement in Michigan and Virginia.
