As the profession matured, Mittman has continued leading efforts that challenge the status quo, such as co-founding PAs for Tomorrow and the American College of Clinicians, which advocated for greater PA/NP collaboration.

Often reflecting on the challenges he’s faced as a PA and administrator, he enjoys being a resource for others and seeing his colleagues empowered.
His leadership journey began by volunteering to solve operational issues early in his career as a clinical PA.

Advocacy for PAs has lead him to other opportunities to serve. PA Pickard was the legislative chair for TAPA. During his tenure he strengthened the inclusion of PA trainees and pre-PA students in legislative activity. One of his accomplishments was the elimination of PA supervision limits in Texas.
PA Pickard’s passion for oncology practice and increasing the recognition of PAs for their clinical roles in the care of patients with cancer, led him to help create and then serve as the AAPA/APAO Medical Liaison to the American Society of Clinical Oncology, where he worked with others to secure a stronger voice for PAs in Oncology.
