Participants at the mini-fellowship in 2019.

Applications are now being accepted for Duke Health's Primary Care Preceptor Development Mini-Fellowship Program, administered by the Duke Physician Assistant Program. Now in its fourth year, the mini-fellowship offers clinician educators (licensed PAs, NPs, MDs, and DOs who serve as primary care providers), a unique opportunity to learn from expert faculty at one of the nation's leading academic medical centers.

The goal of the program is to equip preceptors to become effective clinician educators who can develop and implement curricula and facilitate group Quality Improvement (QI) projects that will address the needs of vulnerable populations in North Carolina.

The three-day program will engage preceptors in acquiring knowledge and skill in the areas of curriculum design and teaching, conducting QI projects, population health, cultural competence, and interprofessional teamwork. A special session on “Addressing the Opioids Epidemic” will also be offered.
