The HealthPartners Advanced Practice Clinician (APC) Fellowship Program is designed to ensure high-quality care and accelerate productivity in alignment with HealthPartners’ workforce strategy. APC fellows can more effectively train in improving health and health care and containing costs; systems thinking; and teaming behaviors while strengthening their clinical competency in highly specialized areas of care delivery.
APC fellows train in multiple HealthPartners inpatient and outpatient practice settings such as urban or rural hospitals. The program length varies but usually is 12 months. The number of fellows accepted each year varies by program.
Goals of the APC Fellowship Program
- To provide postgraduate specialty training for APCs that promotes competency in systems-based practice with a focus on improving health and health care and containing costs.
- To give APCs the opportunity to refine their knowledge and skills so they may integrate into their chosen specialty at an accelerated rate.
- To ensure that APC fellows experience didactic and clinical training that will prepare them to be skilled partners in care delivery.
The fellowship program is committed to training APCs to demonstrate clinical expertise, ethical behavior, leadership skills, cultural awareness, professionalism and an ongoing commitment to learning.
