Nine North Carolina clinicians — also preceptors to Duke University medical, nursing and PA students — recently completed a three-day Primary Care Training and Enhancement Program Faculty Development Mini-Fellowship at the Duke Physician Assistant Program.

Mini-fellowship participants were:

  • Elizabeth Buno, PA-C — Roxboro Family Medicine, Roxboro
  • Elizabeth Erickson, MD — Duke Pediatrics/Primary Care, Durham
  • Cynthia Gary, PA-C — Johnston County Health Department, Smithfield
  • Liza Genao, MD — Duke Department of Geriatrics, Durham
  • Karr Lynn Johnson, FNP — Roxboro Family Medicine, Roxboro
  • Georgina Keene, PA-C — Duke Perinatal Clinic, Durham
  • Virgil Mosu, FNP — Holton Wellness Center, Durham
  • Kristina Silberstein, PA-C — Lyon Park Clinic, Durham
  • Philip Susann, PA-C — Durham VA Heath Care, Durham

The goal of the mini-fellowship is to equip preceptors to become effective clinician educators who can develop and implement curricula, and facilitate group QI projects that will address needs of vulnerable populations in North Carolina. The mini-fellowship is part of a Health Resources and Services Administration grant awarded to Duke University in 2016 for primary care training and enhancement.
