Heritage Health is launching a 13-month postgraduate training program for nurses and physician assistants.
Heritage Health is currently accepting applications for the program, which begins this fall.
The program’s mission is to improve access to and quality of health care in the North Idaho community by advancing the education of newly graduated nurse practitioners and physician assistants.
These residents will receive the depth, intensity and breadth of training necessary to support new providers in gaining the competence, clinical and leadership skills and confidence to deliver high-quality health care to the community, said Dr. clinical director.
“We are excited to launch this nurse practitioner/physician assistant residency program because it will help better serve our patients,” said Rousseau. “For recent graduates, this is a great way to develop their careers as they become primary care providers. As a community health center, we see a wide range of patients who may have complex medical problems, which will allow our residents and providers to better partner and serve our patients and community.”
The program will include pre-primary care sessions, specialty rotations, mentored independent clinics in a rural setting, weekly didactic sessions, various other educational opportunities, and the opportunity to begin building a patient panel.
Heritage Health has several residency slots available for nurse/physician assistant residents this year.
“Health care continues to evolve and Heritage Health wants to be ahead of the curve,” said Heritage Health CEO Mike Baker. “We hope that these residents will stay with us after they complete the program and become the future medical leaders of Heritage Health.”
