Jeff Spivey, MPAS, PA-C
Greetings to all my colleagues and peers in PAOS. I am entering the election for the South Central Regional Director and would humbly ask for support and your vote in November.
I have been a PA for 19 years, with 5 years in family medicine and 14 years in orthopaedics. I served 20 years of active duty in the US Army and have now been a civil service PA for 13 years. My experience in our field involves working with over 30 surgeons in all areas of clinical and surgical orthopaedics.
I am a PA educator and mentor daily. I began my work with PAOS in 2016 as the co-chair of the CME Committee and have continued in that role through the present. I have taught and co-taught graft preparation labs for 3 of those 4 years and assisted with organization of the annual conference.
With regard to leadership in the PA profession, I have been asked to serve on and have participated in various NCCPA committees investigating the roles and responsibilities of orthopaedic PAs and PANRE alternative testing. I currently serve as the sole PA representative on the Medical Staff Executive Committee for my hospital. I have guest lectured numerous times for PA students, ER and FP interns, primary care PAs and NPs, and prospective PA students.
As I have grown in this profession, I have a greater appreciation for leadership into the future. If elected, I will serve the South Central Region with passion and humility as a representative to the PAOS Board of Directors.
