Hello friends and colleagues!
My name is Nisha McKenzie. I am a practicing PA in Grand Rapids Michigan and your APAOG Membership Committee Chair. I transitioned from Family Practice into OB/GYN in 2011 and as of June 2022 I have had the amazing opportunity to open my own multispecialty medical center focusing on Gynecology, Sexual Medicine, Pelvic Health and Mental Health. It can be done! And APAOG was instrumental in my ability to achieve this goal. I am reaching out in hopes of connecting with you to see what you would like to see APAOG do for you?
Over the past few years, we have doubled our membership and begun hosting an annual conference at a low cost for members. This year our conference will be an in person event and will host many interesting and useful workshops!
Throughout the years we have been able to develop and provide our members with OB/GYN onboarding documentation to help prepare you to work within a team of OB/GYN medical professionals, as well as Core Competencies for PAs working within or wanting to bridge the gap into Obstetrics and Gynecology.
There are more and more PAs working within OB/GYN and I feel very strongly that PAs fill a void in this specialty that is unable to be filled by any other medical professionals. With our surgical, procedural, and comprehensive medical training, we are able to fulfill both office/clinic positions as well as surgical/hospital positions.
APAOG is YOUR organization, and we are consistently working to continue to provide the most up to date and clinically useful training to our members in the form of conferences, social media educational posts, our journal The Artemis, our podcast, on-demand webinars, and even within our community forum.
Really, I would love to hear from you! Please let me know what I can do to help your professional journey. You may reply to this email or members can post questions or de-identified cases in our member forum.
If you are not a member yet, I hope you will consider joining us!
Love and Lube,
