Item Description

  • This letter from the Executive Secretary of the Wyoming State Medical Society, Robert G. Smith, is dated August 28, 1972 and is in response to Robert B. Weinheimer's letter about possible physician assistant jobs in Wyoming. Mr. Smith notes that "before we can offer any assistance to you, we will need a copy of your certificate from the American Association of Physician Assistants." There is no mention of Weinheimer's graduation from a formal PA training program, only that he is certified by the American Association of Physician Assistants. This was a growing concern for the American Academy of Physicians' Associates and the National Association of Physician's Assistants (see item 372)
