Post Graduate Residency Programs

Veterans Administration Primary Care Residency

The Emory Physician Assistant Program and The Veterans Atlanta Medical Center (VAMC) have collaborated to create the Primary Care Residency Program.  Begun in 2012 with a $10.7M Innovations Grant, this training program includes 12 months of didactic and clinical educational experiences focusing on Patient Aligned Care Team (PACT) concepts of patient engagement in their own care, clinical leadership, systems-based practice, chronic disease management, practice process improvement and timely transitions of care between primary and specialty care. The PACT model is built on the well-known concept of the Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) staffed by high-functioning teams.  The goals of this training program include: implementation of a model PA post-graduate curriculum in the PACT delivery system, delivery of an outstanding educational experience for residents, and the development of future VA employee leaders and change agents.

The mission of the VA Residency Program in Primary Care for Physician Assistants is to prepare PA professionals to practice comprehensive, coordinated, patient-centered, team-based primary care.  Commitment to this mission will promote timely access to both primary and specialty care, improve quality of patient care and enhance the patient experience.  The program’s philosophy is to provide and inspire supportive and effective advanced educational experience for PA Residents.

The first six-month block of core rotations will acquaint PA residents with general and specialty surgery fields, followed by six months of elective rotations directed towards personal interests and career goals. Clinical experiences will be reinforced by a daily didactic curriculum provided via live and web-based lectures, multidisciplinary rounds, weekly conferences, and simulation labs.


Urology Residency

The Urology Residency is a 12-month full-time program where students will earn a residency certificate after completion. The mission is to provide a broad-based educational experience whereby a certified physician assistant is trained in the diagnosis and treatment of urological conditions. The physician assistant resident program emphasizes patient care, medical knowledge, interpersonal and communication skills and professionalism. Objectives include exposure to patients in outpatient, inpatient, and surgical settings, with peri-operative involvement, to promote and enable the resident to gain the confidence and experience necessary to practice in a urology setting of their choice. Physician Assistant residents will rotate through a variety of settings: outpatient clinics, outpatient surgery and procedures, operating room, and inpatient service. Rotation sites are the Emory University Hospital, The Emory Clinic and Winship Cancer Institute and include both clinical and didactic components.
