Biography

Karen Brancewicz has particular clinical interests in internal medicine, acute physical medicine, rehabilitation, and nephrology.

Karen began her career as a Physician Assistant 29 years ago. She was previously a Registered Nurse who was lucky enough to be one of the 14 students accepted into the last year of the government program for Physician Assistants in Pittsburgh, PA. Her group was the only group of Physician Assistant students in Pittsburgh. Her home base was a classroom at the Allegheny Community College, but her education took place in all of the hospitals in Pittsburgh and Pittsburgh University. Karen loves what she does, and doesn’t have the word ‘retirement’ in her vocabulary.
