APP Fellowship Programs

Advanced Practice Provider Fellowship Program

Norton Healthcare and Sullivan University have collaborated to create The Norton Healthcare  - Sullivan University Post Graduate APP Fellowship Program.  The APP Fellowship Program is designed to transition graduate PAs and NPs from general practice to specialized practice with a focus on caring for patients in the acute care setting.  The program offers two fellow placements per specialty – 1 PA and 1 NP.  The 12-month program contains a mix of didactic and clinical experiences throughout the postgraduate year.  Fellows will participate in structured post-graduate education training experiences within the Norton Healthcare System to acquire advanced knowledge and skills in the delivery of patient care, research, and education.  Fellows will also complete a longitudinal Teaching Certificate Program through Sullivan University to develop and hone knowledge, skills, and confidence in the areas of teaching and precepting. 

This fellowship is seeking membership with the Association of Post-Graduate PA Programs (APPAP) and will be seeking credentialing when able.

Available Fellowships for 2023:

  • Critical Care (1 NP, 1 PA)
