We Help Advanced Practice Providers Thrive in Practice

During our 12 month program, we dive deep to help APPs translate topics covered in school to real-world practice. Our expert speakers focus on top issues seen in primary care – if you’re great at addressing these common diagnoses, you’ll be great at your job.

Through our live and online residency, you’ll get mentorship and support, balance clinical and professional development, attend a 2-day skills lab, and more – all designed to help providers thrive.
