Curriculum

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.
