OTP will be the biggest, most significant proposal in PA history. Truly, that isn’t an overstatement. I have been doing this for over 25 years, so I know whence I speak. This is BIG!

PAs are prepared academically, clinically and experientially to become fully recognized and acknowledged as collaborative team members in medical practices.
I would encourage all of us to take the necessary steps to promote OTP which will create the kind of change that will ultimately result in PAs being able to do what we are capable of. To remain competitive in the job market, we need to ensure we are on a level playing field with nurse practitioners with regard to practice guidelines and regulations.
