What is the APP Primary Care Fellowship?
From routine wellness care and sick visits to chronic disease management and injury follow-up, the practice of primary care medicine requires a collaborative approach to patient care. To deliver complex, comprehensive care, providers must rely on a broad set of skills and the precise integration of behavioral and social sciences, basic procedural skills and the ability to coordinate care with specialists. This rapidly growing specialty is in need of skilled nurse practitioners (NPs) and physician assistants (PAs) trained to prevent, diagnose and treat a wide variety of pathologies in patients of all ages.
The Lee Physician Group (LPG) Advanced Practice Provider (APP) Fellowship in Primary Care Medicine is a 12-month program designed to train the next generation of skilled nurse practitioners and physician assistants to provide high quality care while becoming leaders in healthcare delivery and patient advocacy.
