Postgraduate Critical Care Residency for Physician Assistants

When on rotations, physician assistant residents will be working within a team to provide comprehensive and consistent care for your patients. You will be responsible for assessment, diagnosis, management, selection of interventions, required procedures, and consistent evaluation of the patients’ progress towards goals. You will have ownership of patients with complex surgical and medical conditions and will manage all aspects of their care, from fluid resuscitation and antibiotic management to pressor use, interpretation of Pulmonary Artery Catheter readings and other invasive/non-invasive hemodynamic parameters, and management of ventilator modes and strategies.

The residency has been approved by the AAPA for 50 Category I CME credits. Additional opportunities to earn Category I and II CME credits are also available throughout the year.

PA Residents will follow the same schedule and adhere to the same call requirements as the surgical and/or anesthesia residents on the team. All residents will follow the guidelines established by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education that became effective on July 1, 2011.
