Claire Naylor recently was appointed a trauma/critical care physician assistant with USA Physicians Group.
In her new appointment, Naylor will be handling medical management of trauma patients, preparing patients for their future recovery, providing education about their injuries and surgeries, and connecting them with resources to foster the healing process.
“The most rewarding part of my job is seeing patients who are critically injured progress to a better state of health, ultimately going home with family or rehab for continued progression,” she said. “They are given a second chance as life. Knowing I am a part of their healing and recovery process is gratifying.”
Naylor said the course work and clinical rotations through USA’s physician assistant program is what prepared her for her job in the trauma department. The program taught her early on how to utilize time efficiently, and it provided an excellent broad foundation to build her medical knowledge, she said.
Naylor received her master’s degree from USA and began her career as a physician assistant at Cardiology Associates in the cardiovascular surgery unit. She is a member of the American Academy of Physician Assistants and Alabama Society of Physician Assistants.
