Hospital Medicine Fellowship
Hospital Medicine emerged in the mid-1990s as a movement by Hospitals and Physicians to address the quality of care measures and length of stay issues that Hospitals and providers faced. Over the past 20 plus years, Hospital Medicine has developed into a recognized medical specialty that has increasingly utilized NPs and PAs in the delivery of care.
The Northwell Health Advanced Clinical Provider (ACP) Fellowship in Hospital Medicine is a post-graduate program for Adult Gerontological Acute Care Nurse Practitioners (NPs) and Physician Assistants (PAs) who desire a career in Hospital Medicine. The fellowship will provide a solid foundation of medical knowledge and patient navigation skills necessary to care for adult Hospital Medicine patients. Fellows will complete a mentored, precepted program where they will acquire a variety of clinical experiences that will prepare them to successfully practice as a Hospital Medicine ACP.
The program was developed to conform to the core competencies published by the Society of Hospital Medicine and designed to prepare the ACP to successfully navigate and manage the vast array of complexities that exist in the management of hospitalized adult patients.
