Application for membership is open at this time to any board-certified or board-eligible physician wishing to join SLPA and its clinical partners in an accountable alliance to improve quality, reduce costs, and clinically integrate care of our patients.

At SLPA, we believe that committee participation provides the physician member with important opportunities to help shape SLPA’s overall direction, develop its operations, promote our mission, and contribute to the success of the organization.
