Advanced Practice Provider (APP) Fellowship Program

The Advanced Practice Provider (APP) Fellowship Program at UR Medicine’s Wilmot Cancer Institute is a one-year post-graduate specialty training program for nurse practitioners and physician assistants. The program is 75 percent clinical and 25 percent didactic, including online education sessions.

The APP Fellowship Program at Wilmot will provide additional skills, training and mentorship experience. This is an intensive clinical program that will prepare NPs and PAs to meet the needs of culturally diverse and clinically complex patients who are typical of the cancer institute. Fellows will work with WCI faculty and APPs with a wide variety of expertise in cancer care experience. Additionally, the APP fellows will be on the cutting edge of healthcare delivery as they train to work within the University of Rochester Medical Center and its affiliates. By the completion of this fellowship, it is anticipated that the fellows will show clinical growth, improved clinical confidence and increased preparedness to care for patients in all of these locations.

The APP Fellowship includes a core program of cancer care and also several specialty rotations meant to enhance oncology provider education, including radiation oncology, palliative care and hereditary cancer screening, among others. Clinical rotations within this fellowship include experiences in the ambulatory, inpatient and subspecialties.
