University of Colorado Faculty Fellow in Aurora, Colorado


University of Colorado – School of Medicine

Advanced Practice Provider Hospital Medicine Fellowship

The University of Colorado Denver l Anschutz Medical Campus seeks individuals with demonstrated commitment to creating an inclusive learning and working environment. We value the ability to engage effectively with students, faculty and staff of diverse backgrounds.

Program Background

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

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

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

The program uses a multiphase approach to develop learners into well-rounded, competent inpatient providers. The DHM has built core clinical teams around fellows in order to provide opportunities for high-yield, bedside clinical instruction from talented Physician and APP faculty. Though it has a strong clinical core, the APF also utilizes frequent didactic sessions and case-based learning to enhance learner development. Fundamentals of education will include a comprehensive bootcamp orientation, weekly didactic education sessions, clinical skills sessions (reading ECGs, interpreting chest radiographs, acid-base problems, etc) and a range of rotational experiences, including general inpatient medicine, swing/nights, emergency medicine, medical-oncology, and consult medicine.
