Advanced Practice Provider Fellowships

App fellowship banner 2

The Advanced Practice Provider Fellowships are a 12-month post-graduate track. The program includes hands-on learning through didactic teaching, clinical simulation, team learning and immersion into multiple clinical experiences at academic and community facilities.

We will prepare you to be a well-rounded provider, leader and resource on your healthcare team. Our program is designed around specific specialty practices to expand your critical thinking skills beyond the level you received in your formal education.

The program is for nurse practitioners and physician assistants. Cohorts will start twice a year; one in the spring and one in the fall.

Upon completion of the fellowship, you will be equipped with crucial experiences and will have established a network of providers. There are multiple post-graduate tracks. Learn more about each of the post-graduate tracks:
