EmergeOrtho PA Receives National Recognition

Johns Creek, GA, Jan. 11, 2017 – Krista Kathleen Bartlett, PA-C, who is employed by EmergeOrtho, has been nationally recognized for earning a specialty credential called a Certificate of Added Qualifications (CAQ) from the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA).

Bartlett was recognized for earning a CAQ in Orthopedic Surgery, a distinction earned by meeting licensure, education and experience requirements and then passing a national exam in this specialty area. She is one of only four Certified PAs in North Carolina to earn a CAQ in Orthopedic Surgery since the program’s inception in 2011.

“Certified PAs are prepared and proven providers who contribute real value to the healthcare of this nation,” says Dawn Morton-Rias, Ed.D, PA-C, president and CEO of NCCPA. “They graduate from demanding masters-level programs, pass a rigorous certification exam, and maintain certification at the highest level through continuing medical education programs and retesting throughout their careers. Certified PAs increase access to care for patients in every specialty and clinical setting, including those that are historically underserved.”

CAQs are offered to certified PAs in cardiovascular and thoracic surgery, emergency medicine, hospital medicine, orthopedic surgery, nephrology, pediatrics and psychiatry.
