Methodist DeBakey Heart and Vascular Surgery PA Residency Program

Methodist DeBakey Heart and Vascular Surgery PA Residency Program                                                        (713) 790-2089 Local Phone                                                       6560 Fannin Street                                                                             Suite 1842                                                      Houston, Texas 77030   Program Description and History The Methodist DeBakey Heart and Vascular Center/ The Methodist Hospital Department of Cardiovascular Surgery is a world-renowned organization located in Houston, Texas, performing over 4000 surgeries each year. Dr. Michael E. DeBakey was instrumental in the formation of the Methodist Hospital’s cardiovascular surgery service, performing the first successful coronary artery bypass in the early 1960’s. In state-of- the art facilities, using some of the world’s most sophisticated technology, Methodist’s cardiovascular and thoracic surgeons are on the leading edge of diagnosis, treatment and discovery. This tradition of innovative treatment continues today with new techniques for mitral valve repair, stenting of great vessels, robotics, off-pump coronary bypass and transplant surgery. Due to limitations on Physician resident duty hours and economics of the specialty, opportunities for Physician Assistants have increased dramatically. However, most employers require experience. The Postgraduate Cardiovascular Residency Program for Physician Assistants is a 12-month residency offered by The Methodist Hospital in conjunction with Weill Cornell Medical College since 2007. Since the program’s inception, we have graduated over twenty PA residents, and all have been able to obtain a job in cardiovascular surgery prior to graduation. The residency will provide qualified candidates the opportunity to learn and improve on their basic surgical sciences, clinical and operative skills, and in the process take advantage of the job opportunities available nationwide.   Curriculum Clinical and didactic components of the program are integrated. Residents will attend lectures in Cardiac surgery, vascular surgery, and Cardiac Anesthesia year-round. When rotating thru ICU, more lectures will be given pertaining to the care of the patient in that setting. i.e. ventilator management, fluids and electrolytes, and inotropic/vasoactive drugs. Residents will become proficient in:   Endoscopic Vein Harvest (EVH) Open...
