Postgraduate Residency for Physician Assistants in Surgery

Postgraduate Residency for Physician Assistants in Surgery

The first two and one-half months are served in a didactic session where international and national leaders in their respective fields of surgical/medical expertise provide lectures. Also, BLS and ACLS certification are acquired. All state requirements for licensure are met including infection control, OSHA, child abuse and HIPPA instruction.

There are also scheduled sessions in the Montefiore Institute for Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIMIS). MIMIS is a center of excellence to instruct surgeons, surgical residents (physician and PAs) in established laparoscopic techniques and to develop new techniques and instrumentation.

For the PA and physician residents there are dry lab sessions available throughout their tenure where computer based exercises sharpen skills and record progress over time as well as mechanical trainers to practice intracorporeal suturing techniques in a three dimensional trainer viewed on a two-dimensional video screen (just as in the OR). The last three weeks of the didactic session are spent on the surgical service the PA resident will be assigned for his or her first month of the clinical session.
