Designing an NP fellowship?


  • Specializes in Family Practice, Urgent Care, Cardiac Ca. Has 3 years experience.

Hi all,

I'm graduating in the spring from an FNP program, and have a few strong job leads, in family medicine, rural health, and with an awesome Family Medicine HIV team. There is a local NP residency I'll be applying to, but I was curious about the possibility of designing my own "NP fellowship." I have some very supportive docs and NPs, who really embrace a teaching culture, and I might be able to get a grant to work with whichever team and get them due credit for their guidance.e.g. clinic hours with some precepting, graduated autonomy and further coursework/CME in speciality areas.

Has anyone had any experience designing their own fellowship/residency/pilot, or working with an organization? Any resources, templates for curricula, do's or don'ts?

Much Obliged!
