The University of Colorado School of Medicine and Childrens Hospital Colorado are pleased to announce that applications for our Inpatient Advanced Practitioner Fellowship are now being accepted. This is a 1 year program, open to PAs and acute care NPs that combines diverse clinical and didactic experiences to help prepare new or recent graduates looking for a career in an inpatient pediatric specialty. More information can be found at: http://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/colleges/medicalschool/departments/pediatrics/meded/fellowships/app-fellowship/Pages/default.aspx
We enrolled our first cohort October 15th and are now recruiting for next year's cohort. Currently, there are two slots per cohort, although we hope to expand to four soon. While this is a new program, it was developed by critical care and hospital medicine faculty that have been training APPs to work in our environment for many years. Post-graduate training isn't for everyone, but we believe that there are talented, intereste new graduates who may lack the experience or exposure to land a career in a tertiary care academic pediatric medical center and we want to help them get there. Please use the contact address through the web site for inquiries, or post here and I will do my best to answer.

I haven't seen much on the forums about people completing a residency after already working. I've been in hospital medicine since I graduated two years ago and I do enjoy my job, but my hope has been to get into critical care/emergency medicine at some point. I think I could likely do that in my area without too much difficulty, but now that I've seen what 'on the job training' really amounts to typically, I am concerned that I'd get pigeon-holed into fast track or something because of the lack of training I'd receive. My fiance and I don't have children (yet, maybe never), and I'm still young enough (early-mid 30s) that I have many years of practice left. I think the extra training, knowledge, and experience would be worth it for the enrichment of my continued career.
Has anyone here done a residency after working? or know anyone who has?
