The goal of the Center for Advanced Practice fellowship program at Carolinas HealthCare System is to provide exposure to an array of complex disease processes in the acute and ambulatory care setting in order to prepare the advanced clinical practitioner (ACP) with the skills necessary to be successful in delivering excellent care.

The fellowship will allow both nurse practitioners (NP) and physician assistants (PA) to develop the knowledge base to perform procedures and life-saving interventions in various high acuity patient populations and situations. It will serve as an immersion in specific specialty competencies to prepare the ACP for the critical thinking above and beyond the level received in their formal education. Furthermore, it will serve to further the ACPs knowledge of evidenced based practice, basic research techniques, guideline development and quality improvement initiatives.

Overall, it will prepare the ACP to be a well-rounded provider, leader and resource within the healthcare team. In addition to scheduled simulation labs, fellows will have real-time exposure to patient care in the various patient care units. They will have a vast experience in many specialty-specific procedures.
