Program Description:

The mission of this Physician Assistant Fellowship program is to expand the knowledge and clinical skills of Physician Assistants in the field of Obstetrics and Gynecology. We believe that with the intensive training gained through the program, our Physician Assistant Fellows (PA Fellows) will become exceptional providers in the inpatient, outpatient, and labor and delivery settings. This program teaches PA Fellows to manage complicated and non-complicated antepartum, intrapartum, postpartum, postoperative, and acutely ill OB and GYN patients. The curriculum also includes labor and delivery experience, triage management, basic ultrasound, experience with evaluating and treating common OB and GYN complaints, much experience in routine OB and GYN outpatient care, and experience with procedures including IUD insertion/removal, Nexplanon insertion/removal, endometrial biopsy, and colposcopy. PA Fellows graduate with competence in performing vaginal deliveries and assisting in cesarean sections.

Within an ever-changing specialty, our PA Fellows graduate with skills geared toward continuous learning. This skill set makes them capable of adapting to changes in the general OB/GYN practice, as well as adapting to new knowledge in different sub-specialties that some of the available jobs require. Our PA Fellows are challenged to achieve their full clinical and personal potentials while being academically and emotionally supported.

Arrowhead Regional Medical Center (ARMC), a 456-bed university affiliated teaching hospital, is the county hospital for San Bernardino County. The OB/GYN team at ARMC, consisting of attending physicians, residents, staff PAs, and PA fellows, is committed to delivering quality and compassionate care to the underserved women of San Bernardino County.

The PA fellowship program is twelve months, with rotations in labor and delivery and outpatient clinics, as well as a night shift rotation and weekend call shifts. We offer our PA Fellows an annual stipend as well as medical, dental, and vision health benefits. Education allowance, food allowance, malpractice insurance, and vacation time will also be provided for our PA Fellows. PA Fellows attend daily lectures, conferences, and training courses in which they may receive additional CME credits. Student loan deferment may be available during the program.

Previous graduates have found jobs in their field of interest, and some of them continue working here in the department as staff PAs while taking care of patients and teaching PA Fellows.

Program Description:

Whether patients are growing their families, going through menopause or scheduling their next well-woman exam, the practice of women’s health requires a collaborative approach to patient care. At Atrium Health, we train our doctors to provide care at any stage of a woman’s life to help them be their best, strongest self. 

The Atrium Health Advanced Practice Provider (APP) Fellowship in Women’s Health is a 12-month program designed to provide general obstetrics and gynecology training for physician assistants, women’s health nurse practitioners, family nurse practitioners and certified nurse midwives. Located in Charlotte, NC, this program teaches foundational knowledge and skills, with some exposure to subspecialty care, including:

  • Reproductive endocrinology
  • Maternal-fetal medicine
  • Urogynecology
  • Gynecologic oncology

The women’s health curriculum offers diverse experiences from inpatient and outpatient care to operative and perioperative environments. By working in collaborative environments rooted in evidence-based practices, these experiences enable APP fellows to learn the skills needed to become well-rounded providers and leaders.

  • Spontaneous and assisted vaginal delivery
  • Labor induction

The goals of our one-year Fellowship is to enhance the clinical knowledge needed to optimally practice, expand the ability to critically think and participate in evidence-based clinical practice. Overall, our fellowship will prepare the APP to be a well-rounded provider, leader, and resource within the healthcare team. In addition to specialty and elective rotation experiences, the APP will receive hands-on learning in our state-of-the-art simulation center, present formal case-based lectures, participate in team learning discussions and receive professional development and quality improvement education.
