Now we invite YOU to join them!

Patient Advocate Career Exploration

This is your opportunity to learn the skills you need to establish a successful advocacy or care management practice.

Do any of these describe you?
  • Maybe you have assisted a friend or loved one, but do not have paid advocacy experience.
  • You’re looking for a way to boost your advocacy resumé or gain more insight about this type of career.
  • Perhaps you’ve been helping others for many years and now you want to figure out how to get paid for the help you provide in the future.
  • You’ve worked in healthcare for many years, you’re thinking about retirement, but you want to stay active and keep helping patients…

If any of these sound like you, or if you are thinking about becoming a private, independent patient advocate but haven’t yet committed to the idea, then our PACE membership level is perfect for you. (Already committed? Check out our Premium Membership.)
