UCSF Medical Center APP Fellowship Programs

UCSF offers two advanced practice provider (APP) fellowship programs that are led by exceptional advanced practice providers and feature practice-based learning, didactic education, mentorship and scholarly projects. The programs are designed to expand the knowledge and skills new graduate (within 18 months of program completion) APPs acquire during their graduate or doctoral training. Fellows are paid and receive full benefits. The programs run November 1 to October 31, annually.

Surgical and Critical Care Nurse Practitioner Fellowship

The UCSF Surgical and Critical Care Nurse Practitioner Fellowship is the first critical care NP fellowship in California, and the first surgical NP fellowship in the country to earn Accreditation with Distinction, the highest recognition awarded by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). The program is in its ninth cohort and is supported by UCSF Health, the UCSF Office of Advanced Practice Providers, the UCSF School of Nursing, and the UCSF Departments of Surgery and Anesthesia. In August of 2021, it was again awarded Accreditation with Distinction. The program accepts Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioners.
