To promote excellence in Emergency Medicine patient care by providing a 12 month, comprehensive postgraduate training program to prepare physician assistants and nurse practitioners to be highly proficient members of the emergency healthcare team.
The Capitol Emergency Associates of TeamHealth Emergency Medicine Advanced Practice Clinician Fellowship located in Austin, Texas was created in 2018 for both physician assistants and nurse practitioners in response to a rapidly increasing need for Emergency Medicine specialty trained APCs. The EM APC fellowship is an intense 12-month postgraduate program that combines didactic and clinical training to prepare the APC to be a skilled partner in the delivery of quality patient care in the Emergency Department, and will provide the APC with the foundational skills and knowledge required for a career in Emergency Medicine. The fellowship program is appropriate for any APC, both new graduate and experienced, with a desire to gain advanced Emergency Medicine training.
Fellowship didactic training has been designed to provide the APC with the essential information needed to practice in Emergency Medicine and consists of a combination of in-depth video lecture series, certification classes, simulation lab, journal club, and grand rounds conference.
Fellowship clinical training will include shifts both as a practicing APC and training alongside a physician or practicing APC, either on an Emergency Medicine core rotation (Emergency Medicine, Pediatric Emergency Medicine and Emergency Ultrasound) or on a specialty rotation (Trauma, Anesthesia, Critical Care, Orthopedics and Radiology). Fellowship clinical training will be provided through the CEA of TeamHealth staffed emergency departments and associated specialists of the St. David’s HealthCare system in Austin, Texas.
