YOU NEED MORE

SUPPORT FOR YOUR PA CAREER​

You want to be a physician assistant, and serve your community. However, no one prepared you for the challenges you’ve had to face as a person of color pursuing medicine. The truth is, you haven’t felt supported and don’t see many people who look like you in the profession. It’s not all in your head! People of color make up a third of the U.S. population but only 12-13% of the PA profession. Without representation, mentorship or a roadmap, many BIPOC students feel like outsiders who can not acquire membership into this exclusive club.

WE BELIEVE THAT

Your Success is a Win For Us ALL

As Certified Physician Assistants and BIPOC, we know how difficult it can be to overcome these barriers. We also know how important it is to have the support of a community of peers who share your journey and understand your challenges.


The PAC is a nonprofit organization on a mission to empower diverse students and practitioners on their journeys to becoming successful physician assistants with thriving careers. Through mentorship, community, education and resources, we support the unique needs of PAs of color at every stage of their careers, so they can improve health outcomes in underserved communities and change the world through medicine.


Together, we will bridge the diversity gap in the classroom, clinic, and communities.
