Neonatal Physician Assistant Residency Program

About the residency program

The Neonatal Physician Assistant Residency Program at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia is a 12-month intensive program designed for physician assistants (PAs) seeking to subspecialize in neonatology.

The program, now in its third year, provides PAs with the skills needed to prepare them to become competent front-line neonatal clinicians. The program includes:

  • Mentoring
  • Didactic teaching
  • Simulations
  • Skills training
  • Clinical experiences

Physician assistant residents will rotate through three sites:

CHOP’s Newborn/Infant Intensive Care Unit (N/IICU), a level IV unit that provides the highest level of care for the most complex and critically ill newborns who need access to 24/7 medical and surgical specialty consults

Pennsylvania Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), a level III unit that cares for babies with serious medical or surgical conditions

Virtua Voorhees Medical Center’s NICU, a level III unit that cares for babies with serious medical or surgical conditions

The program accepts two PAs per year as salaried residents for the program that runs from the end of October to October of the following year. At the conclusion of the program, residents will receive a certificate of completion.

CHOP’s Neonatal PA Residency Program is in the three-year process to earn final accreditation from the Accreditation Review Commission on education for the Physician Assistant.
