Physicians and other prescribers may apply for membership in the PBA's State Trooper Surgeons program. With more than 3,800 prescribers affiliated, reasons for joining vary. The longstanding relationship between law enforcement and the medical community is certainly a good one. Joining to ensure the medical well-being of the 8,000 lives under the PBA umbrella is the best one.
Membership entitles applicants to certain individual benefits, such as:
- STATE TROOPER SURGEON CREDENTIALS AND VEHICLE IDENTIFICATION
- PBA CARDS AND STICKERS
- PREFERRED MEDICAL PARTNER CERTIFICATE
- ACCESS TO ELITE FIREARMS SAFETY AND MARKSMANSHIP CLASS
- SPECIAL AWARD MIXERS FOR DOCTORS AND/OR MEMBERS WHO HAVE SAVED LIVES
Member providers may choose to be included on the PBA's list of providers if they are able to accept patients or provide guidance.
New credentials will be mailed each year upon membership renewal, although all members maintain the same STATE TROOPER SURGEON Shield that they were issued.
*Please note that we are not accepting applications at this time for Residents as well as thoe who hold a medical title of RN, LPN, EMT, Pharm D, or NP*
