The Mercer-Piedmont Heart Physician Assistant Post-Graduate Residency in Advanced Cardiology is a collaborative effort between the Mercer University Physician Assistant Program and Piedmont Heart.
Residents will participate in the admission and consultation of cardiac patients to the intensive care units. Responsibilities will include rounding on nights, weekdays, and weekends. Residents will rotate through cardiac subspecialties including, but not limited to, general and interventional cardiology, electrophysiology, advanced heart failure, and cardiothoracic surgery. The residents will acquire skills necessary to contribute to the management of advanced cardiac disease pathophysiologies, such as cardiogenic shock, advanced coronary disease, cardiac arrhythmias, and valvular heart disease.
Additionally, residents will work with experts in advanced imaging techniques such as echocardiography, and cardiac MR/CT. There will be ongoing opportunities to obtain Category I CME throughout the year. Mercer-Piedmont Heart PA Residency is one of the first Advanced Cardiology post-graduate PA Residencies of its kind.
