Postgraduate Residency for Physician Assistants in Surgery

Postgraduate Residency for Physician Assistants in Surgery

Montefiore's Physician Assistant residency is the oldest postgraduate residency program in the country. In 1971, just six years after the Physician Assistant profession was founded, Montefiore became the first hospital to include PA's as house officers on inpatient surgical services. Those PA's quickly became an integral part of the surgical team at Montefiore and their clinical experience was formalized into a 12 month residency in general surgery and surgical specialties.

In 1978, a pre-internship didactic phase was added in order to provide a firm scientific foundation for the clinical phase of the program. The current residency is still structured in this way, that is, with a classroom based educational program followed by clinical rotations. Our program attracts both new graduates wanting a broad and intense experience in acute care patient management, as well as PA's in practice who desire to redirect their careers or to acquire new specialty skills.
