Physician Assistant Program
In 2022, the emergency medicine physician assistant program achieved the milestone of graduating it’s tenth class and a total of 25 graduates. The program title was changed to The Regions Hospital/HealthPartners Institute Emergency Medicine Physician Assistant Fellowship to align with our institutional naming practice and the majority of postgraduate PA and APC programs nationally. The program continues to partner with the emergency medicine residency, Regions and Lakeview emergency departments, Regions Hospital specialty services and St Paul Children’s
Emergency Department to provide knowledge and experience, and to promote excellence in the care given
by our PA trainees. This year’s class pursued additional experience in critical care with novel experiences in the MICU.
