Emergency Medicine PA Fellowship

The Emergency Medicine PA Fellowship, founded at Community Regional Medical Center and affiliated with the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) School of Medicine, offers an 18-month postgraduate residency that will accept two emergency medicine PA (EMPA) residents per year. Graduates who successfully complete the residency will receive a certificate of completion from UCSF. Our curriculum is based on the Model of the Clinical Practice of Emergency Medicine and the Society of Emergency Medicine Physician Assistants (SEMPA) Emergency Medicine Physician Assistant Postgraduate Training Program Standards. These standards have been set by SEMPA, the national organization representing EMPAs. EMPA residents will learn and work alongside physician residents during their clinical and didactic training. The program will feature a strong emphasis on clinical teaching and hands-on training. The purpose of the PA emergency medicine residency is to provide extensive emergency medicine patient management skills that would propel graduates into successful future careers in both academic and private practice settings.

Community Regional Medical Center’s new, state-of-the-art emergency department serves as the only Level 1 Trauma Center and Burn Center for Central California and handles an annual ED volume of over 110,000.
