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.
