The UPMC Department of Surgery is sponsoring a Postgraduate Surgical Residency for Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners.

This program is the FIRST of its kind in Western Pennsylvania and one of the ONLY advanced practice provider (APP) surgical residencies to be inclusive of both physician assistants and nurse practitioners.

Residents will receive a structured didactic curriculum consisting of lectures, journal clubs, case studies, simulation labs and grand round sessions. Combined with this will be clinical rotations through world class UPMC surgical specialties including acute care general surgery, surgical oncology, trauma surgery, thoracic surgery, surgical critical care and vascular surgery.

The residency will offer the physician assistant or nurse practitioner a unique opportunity to cultivate a mastery of surgical fundamentals including assisting at surgery, bedside procedure performance, as well as principles of preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative patient care.

Upon completion of the residency, the physician assistant or nurse practitioner will be awarded a certificate of completion from UPMC.

Applicants must be graduates of either an accredited physician assistant or acute care nurse practitioner program and licensed to practice in Pennsylvania by July 1, 2013. Applications will be accepted through January. Applicants will be interviewed and offers made in March.
