Help Us Celebrate PA Week 2021

Barton knows that PAs are essential to the success of our healthcare system. This year, we join the AAPA in inviting PAs across the country to share their ‘WHY’ on social media.

Become a Barton Locum!

Physician assistants are a vital part of the healthcare system in the U.S. Whether they are on the frontlines fighting COVID-19, working a locum tenens assignment in a rural area, or serving their community locally, they are true heroes.

Barton is getting ready to celebrate PAs across the country for National PA Week 2021! This week, we take an extra moment to appreciate the physician assistants (PAs) who work tirelessly to serve our country.

To do so, we are joining the AAPA in inviting PAs across the country to share their ‘WHY’ on social media.  ‘Why they chose this career path, ‘why’ they chose locum tenens (if they did), or any other ‘why’.  One lucky PA will win a Barton prize package!

What is the 2021 PA Week Contest?

Barton Associates want to learn more about ‘WHY’ PAs choose this line of work. We want to share the stories of PAs across the country via social media. We are asking PAs to post their ‘WHY’ to social media and invite friends to post too!
