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.

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.
