NP & PA Residency Program

The Center for Education in Community Medicine,  Launching in 2018!

Our Residency Program.

The PHC Residency Program will provide the new resident with an unparalleled experience that focuses on humanity, compassion and a strong personal bond with the patient and the community. The Nurse Practitioner or Physicians’ Assistant Resident will be mentored by a team of highly committed, experienced faculty, and will be working with a diverse population of underserved patients. Residents will learn about PHC’s innovative team approach in a multicultural, multilingual environment and will be part of a rewarding, academically rigorous working environment.

The residency will be a 12 month full-time program with didactics, pre-cepting, mentoring, specialty experiences, and inter-professional learning.  We will aim to foster a culture of critical thinking and cooperative learning, to reach goals of competency and confidence in medical practice, with the end result graduates who will  provide high quality care, reach their goals, and maintain a high level of job satisfaction.

Our NP/PA Resident Application is now closed.  We will re-open the application process again in March 2018 for an anticipated August 2018 start date.  We encourage all applicants to apply in March 2018.
