Advanced Practice Clinician Fellowship

Fellowship Information Sheet

Our Mission

To transform trainees into demonstrably high quality and capable advanced practice clinicians who will be lifelong providers of quality evidence-based care; work to improve the health of the people of our region; and work effectively and collegially with other providers to these same ends.

Who is eligible?


Any nurse practitioner or physician assistant within 18 months of graduation after a nurse practitioner or physician assistant program may apply for the North Mississippi Medical Center Advanced Practice Clinician (APC) Fellowship.

How to apply?

Go to www.nmhs.net/employment_opportunities.php or search for North Mississippi Medical Center employment opportunities and browse the job postings. Apply online for the APC Fellowship under the clinical professional category. Applications for October open February 1 each year. Application deadline is June 1.

When does the Fellowship start?

The Fellowship runs Oct. 1—Sept. 30 each year.

What type things will I be doing? How is it different from a regular APC job?

The Fellowship is directed toward one of two practice paths (hospital-based or clinic-based) and includes a series of clinical rotations and didactic sessions that enhance knowledge, skills and confidence. The Fellowship allows for direct supervision for the 720 hours mandated by the Mississippi Board of Nursing for nurse practitioners and assistance for physician assistants in scheduling and completing the 120 days of direct supervision required by the Mississippi Board of Medicine. Participation in this fellowship by NPs and PAs assists you in completing paperwork for NPI, PMP, DEA and third-party payor credentialing, and provides additional clinical experience in a variety of settings. Continuing education is provided for such skills as suturing, radiology, rural trauma, DOT exams, SANE and other programs to verify and document competency. Specialty and primary care rotations may include rotations in cardiology, endocrinology, infectious disease, behavioral health, urology, rheumatology, emergency services, skilled nursing facilities and tobacco cessation. Rotations are determined based on skill needs and personal electives. The Fellowship is different from a regular APC job in that you have a seasoned APC with you throughout all of the clinical rotations. The goal is to allow you adequate time to learn about North Mississippi Health Services’ clinics and hospitals.

Job Description and Benefits

During the Fellowship, you are considered a full-time regular salaried employee with full benefits. At the conclusion of the Fellowship, you are welcome to apply for open positions within NMHS.
