Physicians and other prescribers may apply for membership in the PBA's State Trooper Surgeons program.  With more than 3,100 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 16,000 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 PROVIDER CERTIFICATE

  • CME OPPORTUNITIES

  • ACCESS TO ELITE FIREARMS SAFETY AND MARKSMANSHIP INSTRUCTION

  • SPECIAL AWARD NIGHTS FOR DOCTORS WHO HAVE SAVED LIVES

  • GROUP PBA INSURANCES

Member providers may choose to be included on the PBA's list of providers if they are able to accept patients or provide guidance.  Please contact us if you have questions about how our providers assist us in meeting our mission.

New credentials will be mailed each year upon membership renewal, although all members maintain the same STATE TROOPER SURGEON Shield that they were issued.
