Congrats Tricia, Hawaii State Derm PA Rep!

Congratulations to our very own Patricia Achay, MSPA, PA-C, for being selected as the brand new Hawaii state liaison for Dermatology Physician Assistants!

Patricia has sought out this leadership position and has a goal to have a meeting with all Derm PA’s in state at least once per year to review cases. As the new liaison for Hawaii, Patricia also hopes to make Hawaii a more active part of the Society of Dermatology Physician Assistants (SDPA) and better serve the patients of Hawaii.

We are proud of you, Tricia, and thank you for representing PAs in our state and being a leader in your field!

The SDPA’s Mission is to:

1. Provide continuing medical education that enhances the skills, knowledge and function of its members in the practice of dermatology.

2. Form a leadership structure that provides services and a forum for communication, builds collegial relationships, and acts as an advocate for its members.

3. Advance the utilization and team concept of Physician Assistants in the practice of dermatology in a supervised relationship with physicians.

4. Develop resources for the evaluation, reimbursement processes and hiring of Physician Assistants in dermatology.
