Rafaele Calamia, PAC

Physician Assistant

Villanova, PA

Rae Calamia chose to pursue a career as a physician assistant (PA) after several years of working for a medical device company. Her desire to find a challenging medically based career that directly impacted patients’ lives made becoming a PA the ideal professional option for her. Rae began her career as a PA in 1999 in orthopedic surgery in Santa Rosa, CA. Drawn to the complex challenges of dermatology, and the opportunity to build long-lasting connections with her patients, Rae started her dermatology career in 2005. In her role as a PA, she performs physical exams, establishes diagnoses, orders and evaluates labs and other studies, performs skin biopsies and surgeries, initiates and manages treatment plans, and prescribes medication. Rae holds an undergraduate degree from Penn State University and earned a Masters of Science Degree in Physician Assistant Studies from DeSales University. She is a member of the Society of Dermatology Physician Assistants and is certified by NCCPA (National Commission on Certification of Physician’s Assistants). To stay at the top of her field, Rae frequently attends dermatology conferences and lectures. “Family is very important to me. Because of our tight-knit relationships, BMD operates like a great work family. Our patients are at home because they feel that trust and warmth. Whether you’re a patient or staff member, this is a friendly place to be.” Rae loves spending time with family and celebrating holidays, and, only on occasion acknowledges she misses California’s weather. When she is not working or being a mom to her twin daughters, she enjoys hiking and listening to music. When she has the opportunity to travel, she prefers hiking through national parks.
