HealthPartners is committed to training practice-ready clinicians to ensure delivery of high-quality patient care and address the healthcare needs of the future.

- Resiliency: Practices self-care and reflection to remain healthy, adaptable, and to avoid burnout.
- Stewardship: Considers healthcare cost impact on the patient and the health system.
- Quality Improvement: Clinicians are leaders in practice-based learning dedicated to improving the quality of the system.
All HealthPartners APC Fellows will participate in core didactics. These didactics may be completed as a group or by specialty. Efforts will be made to communicate existing opportunities for all fellows to participate.
