The Carilion Clinic Orthopaedic Department would like to offer a post-graduate Advanced Clinical Practitioner Fellowship in Orthopaedic Surgery for Physician Assistants (PAs) and Nurse Practitioners (NPs) that have a RNFA certificate. This intensive program will build upon the strength of our highly successful PA and NP orthopaedic practice already in place, combined with the largest and most effective orthopaedic surgeons in southwest Virginia. The fellowship will be a complement to the Orthopaedic residence currently training at Carilion Clinic. NP and PA fellows will benefit from didactic and clinical experiences that mirror orthopaedic residents training.
Graduates of this one-year fellowship program will possess substantial skills, knowledge, and competencies required in the field of orthopaedics.
Fellows accepted into the program will be full-time employees of Carilion Clinic and eligible for full medical, dental, and disability benefits. They will also retain CME benefits of other fellows such as BCLS/ACLS/PALS certifications, subsidized healthcare, lab coats, moving expenses, phones, etc.
This dynamic program includes didactic instruction and clinical training components that two fellows will complete over 12 months. Orientation will be approximately six weeks long (EPIC, credentialing, etc).
Clinical time will be spent in various departments of Carilion Clinic, under the supervision and direction of Carilion faculty. They will be working alongside other residents, NPs, PAs, and attending physicians in all sections of the orthopaedic department. They will also take call in the emergency department.
Didactics include, but are not limited to:
The didactic portion begins with a month of orientation and skills workshops designed to provide introduction to orthopaedics. Fellows will attend lectures that cover the core curriculum for orthopaedic specialties.
