Our mission is to provide a dynamic and hands-on training experience to ensure physician assistants can provide the highest level of comprehensive patient care.  The surgical PA residency curriculum is tailored to support the residents’ development of clinical skills and knowledge in order to become exceptional and well-rounded providers in surgery. 

Training will be provided on the surgical floors and in the ICUs clinics and operating room.  Residents will become proficient in pre-operative, intra-operative and post-operative care.  Additional instruction in our state-of-the-art simulation and minimally invasive surgical training centers will strengthen both clinical decision making and technical skill sets. 

In this world class academic institution, PA residents will learn basic and advanced surgical concepts and techniques. Under appropriate supervision, PA residents will gain the confidence and experience necessary to practice in a wide variety of surgical specialties in academic and private settings.
