medical students are our future physicians
they need our support today!
It’s up to us to educate the world on the importance of investing in the future of medicine. Beyond the banter and political debating about the fate of healthcare, the medical community is experiencing an inferred epidemic with Physician shortages. We never imagined that the general public would experience a nationwide shortage of toilet paper and other essential items, but we did.
Could you imagine life with a worldwide shortage of physicians? Our livelihood depends on good doctors. America’s environment of uncertain healthcare futures mixed with the terrors of COVID-19 can easily dissuade the potential interest of physician hopefuls.
Future doctors need assurance, and medical students need support. That’s our cause at Physicians Working Together, to connect, collaborate, and care for physicians, medical students, and the communities that we serve. One of the world’s leading experts on infectious disease, Dr. Tony Fauci, is 80 years old. We cannot let excellence end there.
Together, we can be a solution for our healthcare future. Please donate today. Your contributions will help us support medical students as they strive to become physicians. Donate here or via Cash App $4PWT. PWT is a 501 (c) (3) Non-Profit organization. All contributions are eligible for tax deduction.
PWT provides a platform for doctors to combine efforts and find solutions through shared physician experiences. Bringing the ailing patient-doctor relationship back to the central focus of healing and respect spurred Dr. Kimberly F. Jackson to form PWT and ultimately National Physicians Week, which celebrated its inaugural year in 2016.

Why We Do It?
The ever-increasing pressures on physicians to compromise quality patient care and their own well-being has lead to alarming rates of physicians changing profession.
PWT provides a forum for physicians from all disciplines to learn from one another’s experiences, share information, and find solutions to universal physician issues.
“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.
