Advanced Practice Provider Fellowship

The University of Colorado Department of Emergency Medicine Advanced Practice Fellowship (EMF) is an 18-month post-graduate program designed to prepare Advanced Practice Providers (APPs) for a career in emergency medicine. Emergency medicine is complex, multifaceted and intense. The overarching goal of this fellowship is to provide emergency medicine exposure and experience to APPs in a supportive teaching environment. Though the fellowship structure allows the fellow to rotate through varies subspecialties in order to enrich this one-year experience, most of the year will be spent in the UCH Emergency Department. 

The fellow will spend time in the Main ED, where high-acuity emergency medicine patients are cared for. The fellow will also rotate through SuperTrack, which is a fast-paced zone in which fellows will care for mid-acuity patients and get exposure to various procedures including suturing, fracture reduction, and I&D. The Clinical Decision Unit will provide the opportunity for the fellow to provide observation medicine. The fellow will also have didactic lectures each month, to combine real-time learning and classroom setting learning. 

There are many aspects to becoming a competent EM APP. It is the mission of this fellowship to provide a springboard for career growth and development, as well as the fundamental tools necessary to have a successful career as an EM APP. This fellowship requires a one-year commitment to complete. Eligible candidates for the fellowship program must have completed a PA or NP education program.
