The mission of the W.G. (Bill) Hefner VA Medical Center / Physician Assistant Residency in Primary Care is to graduate PAs who demonstrate clinical expertise in Primary Care.

This will include development of strong leadership skills, ethics, professionalism in working with Veterans, colleagues, and participation in the education of PA students. The goal is to provide additional clinical training for applicants as they care for the health needs of Veterans in the Salisbury and surrounding communities.
