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

Mini-fellowship participants were:

  • Teah Bayless, DO – Duke Family Medicine Center, Durham
  • Amy Brantley, PA-C – Goldsboro Pediatrics, Goldsboro
  • Will Bynum, MD – Duke Family Medicine Center, Durham
  • David Catron, PA-C – Fort Bragg, 3rd Special Forces Group, U.S. Army
  • Bevlin Duncan, DNP – Durham VA Health Care, Durham
  • Kristi Giemza, FNP – TROSA Medical Clinic, Durham
  • Kaitlyn Granda, PA-C – Walltown Neighborhood Clinic, Durham
  • Jason Hoyle, PA-C – Mission Family Medicine, Nebo
  • Emily King, MHS, PA-C – Psychiatric Emergency Department, Duke University Hospital, Durham
  • Julie Sharrer, PA-C – Pinehurst Medical Clinic, Pinehurst

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.
