COVID-19 Discussion Forum

The WSMA offers this private discussion forum for physicians and PAs in Washington state, regardless of membership status. If you’re not a WSMA member, please consider joining us—your membership strengthens our community and greatly aids our efforts on your behalf.

About the COVID-19 Forum

To participate in forum discussions, you must have a WSMA account and be logged in. Any physician or PA licensed in Washington state can create an account, for free, to access the forum—you don’t have to be a WSMA member.

The forum is divided into four topic areas:

  • Testing & Treatment
  • Telemedicine
  • Caring for the Caregiver
  • General

Click on a thread below to see what's being discussed and add to the discussion. You can share links and attachments in your posts. We encourage the open sharing of information and ideas during this time of crisis.

For a list of available resources, please visit the WSMA's COVID-19 Response webpages, which are updated regularly.
