Duke Surgery – Duke University School of Medicine
The physician assistant surgical residency is an intensive 13-month program administered by the department of surgery at Duke University Medical Center. PA surgical residents are members of the surgical team and are involved in preoperative, intra-operative, and postoperative patient care.
The PA residency is designed to provide both advanced didactic education (one month) and a focused, surgical clinical experience (12 months) so that trainees and graduates will have the skills to provide high quality perioperative patient care.
The PA residency is attractive both for new PA program graduates who are planning a surgical career and for practicing physician assistants who wish to redirect their careers toward one of the surgical specialties or enhance their knowledge and skills through post-graduate education.
