Advocacy

The National College of Physicians (NCP) was founded in 1983 by a small group of physicians who shared a commitment to medicine to advocate for physicians and improve the quality of life for all patients. For over 35 years, the NCP has been serving physicians across the country, in all specialties. The National College of Physicians provides for the well-being of physicians, residents, fellows and academia. The NCP a national organization of multi-specialty physicians who apply scientific knowledge, clinical research and technical expertise to the study, diagnosis, and treatment, with compassionate care of patients across the spectrum of health.

PPAC’s goal is to strengthen the constituency for progressive medicine in the nation through direct engagement with advocacy, political, regulatory and legislative bodies.  More broadly, PPAC seeks to affect positive change through education and action related to medical issues impacting the medical profession and our physicians.

Within the PPAC, we provide a forum for practitioners to voice opinions and exchange ideas.  One of the purposes of PPAC is to strengthen the constituency for progressive medicine throughout our states, cities and rural areas.
