Critical Care and Emergency Medicine
Advanced Practitioner (PA/NP) Fellowship
St. Luke's University Health Network offers a 12-month acute care advanced practitioner postgraduate fellowship with tracks in emergency medicine or critical care. Six core clinical rotations are the mainstay of the fellowship for both tracks; with specialization in one of the two tracks, allowing fellows to refine their educational experience.
St. Luke's provides the advanced practitioner fellow with specialty training in the expert management of critically ill patients in the emergency department, intensive care units and the trauma bay. PA/NP fellows will become proficient in:
- Evaluation of critically ill and injured patients
- Initiation of appropriate, complete diagnostic and treatment plans
- Development and implementation of patient care plans
- Providing leadership
This multidisciplinary acute care training program is actively seeking individuals who have completed a board certified physician assistant or nurse practitioner program. St. Luke's University Health Network provides fellows the opportunity to acquire extensive experience and work alongside a diverse and active faculty committed to education. Dedicated faculty delivers a comprehensive approach to patient care in a complex environment. The magnitude of clinical experiences in this multidisciplinary program provides incomparable learning opportunities for the fellows.
