Premise Health Team Member Recognized as Pioneer in the Profession
Johns Creek, Ga., Aug. 21, 2015 – Michael Moore, PA-C, is one of only 224 certified physician assistants (PA-Cs) in the country to be certified for 40 years by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA).
Moore was among the first PAs to be nationally certified by NCCPA in 1975. He maintained certification by meeting continuing medical education (CME) requirements every two years and passing rigorous recertification exams every six years.
Moore has been employed by the Premise Health for 20 years. “As a certified PA who has made a commitment to maintaining certification and professional standards, I am most proud of over 30 years of teaching CPR classes to the lay public.”
In 2015, NCCPA celebrates four decades of serving the public through PAs certification and recognizes this small group of PAs who were the first to carry the PA-C designation.
“NCCPA is thrilled to have been a part of the PA profession for 40 years,” says Dawn Morton-Rias, Ed.D, PA-C, president and CEO of NCCPA. “We are even more proud of these certified PAs for serving as pioneers to the profession and for their continued dedication to their career and their patients.”
