Advanced Practice Clinician Residency Program for Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants

 

APC Residency Program Application

Program Overview


The North Mississippi Medical Center Family Medicine Residency Program offers an intensive one-year program for Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants. The residency year begins with a two-week intensive orientation to North Mississippi Health Services (NMHS), North Mississippi Medical Clinics (NMMCI), NMMC’s Family Medicine Residency Center, the neighborhoods in which the training sites are located and the health problems of the target population.

The residency has four key components:

 

Continuity Clinics

 

The residents develop their own patient panel while having a provider (M.D., D.O. or APRN) exclusively assigned to them.

 

Required Rotations


APC residents complete rotations in several subspecialties and maintain an independent clinic.

 

Independent Clinics

 

During independent clinics, the APC residents work as a member of a team and see patients at the delegation of the primary care providers, who remain on site for supervision.

 

Didactic Education Sessions

 

APC residents participate in formal learning sessions on a variety of clinical and professional topics each Friday morning and afternoon.

 

Qualifications

 

Applicants must be graduates from an accredited master’s program, and licensed and certified in Mississippi.

 

Application Process

 

Four positions are available each year. The deadline for submitting your completed application packet, personal statement, and three letters of recommendation (one must be from the Chair of the master’s program from which you graduated) is May 14, 2015.
