Physicians, Medical Students, and Communities
Who We Are?
Physicians Working Together, Inc is a non-profit organization founded in 2015 by Dr. Kimberly Funches Jackson in Columbus, GA. The collective mission is to CONNECT, COLLABORATE, and CARE for physicians, medical students, and communities. PWT represents an international membership base of over 9,000 online members in the United States, Canada, New Zealand, the Caribbean Islands, and more.
Our initiatives provide medical student scholarships and facilitate national biennial Healthcare Town Halls
(open to patients, legislators and communities ) as well as daily medical professionals interdisciplinary dialogue and sharing of information.
What We Do?
We are an umbrella organization for information, advocacy, networking, collaboration, community outreach and support for one another.
PWT is a 501 C 3 non-profit organization that's dedicated to CONNECTING, COLLABORATING, and CARING for physicians, medical students, and the communities that we serve.
Why We Do It?
There are minimal efforts across the board that activate veteran physicians to become more active in the education system. Our country cannot go on in a healthy manner without physicians. The Future Physicians of America program was created in response to the alarming rate of decline in the physician population. It is up to us to train and inspire great physicians who will be responsible for the well-being of our communities in the future. PWT non-profit programs provide innovative approaches to education and measurable activities that will contribute to a sustainable healthcare system.

“Physicians Working Together keeps me tuned in to various physician groups working on maintenance of certification, the scope of practice issues, drug prices, gun violence, and more. Work keeps me busy, but Physicians Working Together helps me stay connected and up to date on topics all physicians should be aware of." Dr. Joy Skaug, Family Medicine Physician Jonesboro, AR
There was a real need to establish a forum for physicians across all specialties to discuss real issues from our point of view, with our patients in mind. The physicians in PWT don’t necessarily have one identical voice; rather, we come together as a network of support to voice our common concerns; not just to be heard but to be regarded. Dr. Marie Jhin MD Board Certified Dermatologist Premier Dermatology and Dermatology Medical Group San Francisco and San Carlos
PWT is vital as we move forward from just talking about the problems with our healthcare system to finding solutions. We must be involved in policy and advocacy that impacts our patients and ourselves. Dr. Bande Virgil Pediatric Hospitalist Columbus Regional Hospital Columbus, GA
PWT is a powerful forum for physicians from all specialties across the United States to come together and voice their concerns and raise awareness. This is why I joined. We cannot do it alone and our voices need to be heard. Dr. Jason Hoover Radiologist Bridgeway Diagnostics Center Phenix City, AL
Doctors from every specialty weigh in and give advice out of the goodness of their hearts. I’ve been able to have conversations with physicians around the country who have the same problems, many who have come up with ingenius solutions. I feel empowered to do what I was trained to do as a family physician. Dr. Antonio Funches Family Physician LGH/Penn Medicine Urgent Care Lancaster, PA

PWT Member Testimonials
Future Physicians of America
Physicians Working Together is dedicated to connecting, collaborating, and caring for physicians, medical students and the communities that we serve. As medical forerunners, we embrace the inherent responsibility to help future physicians become successful on their journey to the finish line.
Physicians Working Together provides helpful medical resources, physician advocacy, medical student mentoring, and scholarships. It’s no secret that medical school is expensive, and the rates continue to climb. Beyond the scope of tuition costs, medical students are faced with a list of additional financial obligations that include lab costs, textbooks, testing fees, and the list goes on.
PWT is dedicated to empowering medical students by keeping them on track for success. The non-profit organization features a Medical Student Mentorship Program that educates and inspires future healthcare professionals with the knowledge, skills and abilities that they will need to overcome today’s challenges and embrace tomorrow’s trends.
The Physicians Working Together Medical Student Scholarship Fund helps recipients relieve a portion of medical students' financial burdens. We feature an annual contest during National Physicians Week that provides a financial stipend to selected medical students each year.
With an effort to combat burnout, the online competition helps medical students take a moment away from the pressures of their coursework during the celebratory week. Participants are encouraged to submit a short video that displays their artistic talents and abilities.
The entries are received up to and during National Physicians Week (March 25-31) and the winners are announced in April.
