Advanced Clinical Provider Fellowship
Part of Northwell Health’s mission statement is the commitment to educating the current and future generations of healthcare professionals. As NY State’s largest private employer, Northwell Health recognizes the value that Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners contribute to the healthcare landscape. In alignment with our commitment to on-going education and career advancement of our providers, we are pleased to announce the development of an Advanced Clinical Provider (ACP) Fellowship.The ACP Fellowship is open to Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners who wish to obtain the advanced knowledge and technical skills necessary to provide world-class care in a variety of medical sub-specialties. We are offering fellowship tracks in Cardiothoracic Surgery, Emergency Medicine, Orthopedics and Radiation Oncology.
The goal of the ACP Fellowship Program is to provide Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners with the opportunity to learn and train in a structured, mentored environment so that they may become extraordinary healthcare providers in their chosen field. We strive to craft individuals who function at the top of their license, provide exemplary patient care and do so in a professional, ethical and sensitive manner. The Fellowship also aims to identify its upcoming leaders; those who will carry the health care system’s vision and mission forward for future generations. Please click on the link below that corresponds to the Fellowship track you are interested in. There you will find more detailed information about that sub-specialty and what Northwell Health has to offer you.
Regardless of which specialty track is pursued, all accepted Fellowship members will attend a specially designed two-week orientation and welcoming experience. During this time, Fellows will learn the essentials on how to navigate and function seamlessly within our Health System. The latter part of this two week orientation will segue into more clinical topics that are important for all medical providers to master. As Fellows begin their training within their chosen tracks, a series of core learning activities will be held on a monthly basis. Fellows from all tracks will reconvene for these activities which will include lectures, case study analysis, procedural skills training, simulation lab experiences, bio-skills classes utilizing cadavers, ultrasound training and more.

"As all health care providers, we realize that completing and graduating from either PA school or advanced degree nursing school is a great accomplishment, but is a far cry from frontline clinical care responsibilities. Northwell Health’s ACP Fellowship Programs provides the experience, expanding skillsets, and confidence to approach and comfortably manage a large variety of critical care scenarios and master procedural skills, that will complement the factual knowledge base of previous years of education. It also enables our fellows to explore the tremendous opportunities that abound for ACP’s in health care, and prevent stunting or dwarfing ones opportunities for future growth and development."Submit your CV

"ACPs are a vitally important component of our clinical team now and in the future. In order to support them in their transition from academia into practice, or as they consider new areas of specialization throughout their careers, the ACP fellowship program will provide a safe and supportive learning environment for NPs and PAs to grow personally and professionally through continuing education, mentorship, and networking opportunities."Submit your CV
