Rochester Regional Health’s Advanced Practice Provider (APP) fellowship programs take place in a protected learning environment that provides exposure to an array of complex disease processes found in acute and office settings. With a focus on developing competence and confidence, the transition-to-practice programs prepare the advanced practice provider to deliver superior patient care. The one-year, post-graduate fellowship programs are appropriate for new nurse practitioners (NP) and physician assistant (PA) graduates.
Overall, the fellowship prepares the APP to be a well-rounded provider, leader and resource within the healthcare team. In addition to scheduled case presentations and team learning discussions, fellows experience real-time patient care as licensed APPs in various patient care units, with a gradual ease into independence.
Each fellow graduate is equipped with crucial experience in many specialty-specific rotations and procedures, as well as an established network of providers within other specialties.
