DescriptionAdvanced Practice Provider Hospital Medicine Fellowship 

The University of ColoradoDenver l Anschutz Medical Campus seeks individuals with demonstrated commitmentto creating an inclusive learning and working environment.  We value theability to engage effectively with students, faculty and staff of diversebackgrounds.

Program Background

The University of Colorado Division of Hospital Medicine’sAdvanced Practice Fellowship (APF) is a 13-month post-graduate fellowshipprogram dedicated to enhancing the development of early-career Acute Care NursePractitioners (ACNPs) and Physician Assistants (PAs) or for those new tohospital-based medicine. Recognizing that ACNPs and PAs are increasinglyutilized in inpatient care models, our program’s mission is to provide the knowledge,skills and attitudes necessary for a provider to succeed in the challengingworld of acute care medicine.  

Started in 2009, the APF is one of the oldest ACNP and PAinpatient training fellowships based on the successes the Division of HospitalMedicine (DHM) had in developing its Hospitalist Training Program for InternalMedicine Residents. The APF has graduated more than fifty fellows, who now holdpositions in Hospital Medicine, Emergency Medicine, the Intensive Care Unit,the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit and in many other Divisions across theUniversity Hospital and the region.

Ideal candidates include ACNPs and PAs interested in working in a hospital-based environment, both inhospital medicine and specialty practices, and are looking for an intensivetraining experience. Since it’s a rigorous and lengthy fellowship, the bestcandidates are those who truly want to spend an additional 13 months intraining as a learner.

The program uses a multiphase approachto develop learners into well-rounded, competent inpatient providers. The DHMhas built core clinical teams around fellows in order to provide opportunitiesfor high-yield, bedside clinical instruction from talented Physician and APPfaculty.  Though it has a strong clinical core, the APF also utilizesfrequent didactic sessions and case-based learning to enhance learnerdevelopment. Fundamentals of education will include a comprehensive bootcamporientation, weekly didactic education sessions, clinical skills sessions (reading ECGs, interpreting chest radiographs, acid-baseproblems, etc) and a range of rotational experiences, including generalinpatient medicine, swing/nights, emergency medicine, medical-oncology, and consultmedicine.
