In the summer of 2017, Gracie moved to Galveston, Texas to attend the University of Texas Medical Brach (“UTMB”) to become a Physician Assistant. She graduated from the UTMB with a Masters of Physician Assistant Studies with honors. Due to her prior experience in dermatology, Gracie knew she wanted to return to Dallas and work in dermatology again. In the fall of 2019, she became a licensed and certified Physician Assistant and began her career in dermatology as a Physician Assistant at Arlington Center for Dermatology in Arlington, Texas (76011).
Gracie resides in Dallas, where she spends time with her friends and family, and enjoys cooking, reading, and traveling in her free time.
Physician Assistants (PAs) are licensed by all 50 states to practice medicine in collaboration with a physician. PAs in dermatology evaluate, diagnosis and treat a broad variety of conditions that are treated both medically and surgically. They also perform screening exams, preventive care and education for dermatologic patients and families. Building on their primary-care training and experience, PAs are trained in dermatology in a variety of ways. Most dermatology PAs are trained in the clinic by the collaborating dermatologist and together the physician-PA team will decide the practice style, collaboration agreement, and delegation of services which they find appropriate for their practice.
To remain nationally certified, Grace must: Complete 100 hours of Continuing Medical Education (CME) every 2 years as well as sitting for Physician Assistant National Recertifying Exam (PANRE) every 10 years.
Grace Cartwright is a Society of Dermatology Physician Assistants (SDPA) Diplomate Fellow and a member of Texas Academy of Physician Assistants (TAPA) and American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA).
