Neurology APC Fellowship

Neurology APC Fellowship

Neurology Fellowship Overview

Program Description

The HealthPartners Neurology APC Fellowship is a comprehensive program that offers the APC Fellow extensive training in Neurology through a variety of teaching environments and subspecialties. Having advanced clinical knowledge and procedural skills provides the APC with confidence and competence as they integrate into their career. This invaluable level of expertise is unlikely to be gained by self-study and on-the-job training. During the 12-month long program, Fellows will have required rotations in specialty areas essential for proficiency in Neurology.

Length of Program: 12 months

Class Size: 1-2

Annual Starting Date: January and July

Program Mission

Fellowship training allows APCs to refine their knowledge and skills to successfully integrate into the specialty of Neurology at an accelerated rate compared with on-the-job training. Having advanced clinical knowledge and procedural skills provides the APC with confidence and competence as they integrate into his/her career.
