ATTENTION: Applications for this program will be available beginning in January 2025 with start dates in 2026.

Through our dedicated PA didactic and skills lab curriculum designed to teach and refine the skills and decision making of an acute care/trauma surgery PA, residents can expect to gain the fundamentals of surgical care. The robust curriculum is designed to prepare the physician assistant for a variety of practice settings by providing a hands-on clinical and surgical experience in a wide spectrum of patient conditions. 

We have a competency based curriculum that includes specific goals & objectives for each rotation. This assures that the PA resident develops competence in all areas.
