The Duke Advanced Practice Providers Leadership Institute (APPLI) is welcoming a new class of 19 fellows this month. The fellows are from diverse interprofessional backgrounds in health care and were chosen from across the United States. The one-year program is entirely virtual.
Fellows apply to the program as part of a team they form within their home institution, led by an advanced practice provider (APP). This year’s cohort consists of seven teams. Each team will create and implement a transformational health project that aims to provide more effective and efficient health care services to vulnerable populations and improve health equity. Projects can have a clinical, educational and/or advocacy focus.
“I am excited to see the fellows develop as leaders and create transformational projects that will have a profound impact on the communities they serve,” said Adriana Green, MEd, training coordinator for the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health.
Teams will work with their chosen health care partner for the duration of the project. Fellows will receive leadership and management training through monthly webinars, panels, and executive coaching along with a series of three weekend leadership web-conferences. The program also emphasizes the importance of stakeholder-engaged advocacy and sustainability of their projects; equity, diversity and inclusion; and project management.
The fellowship began with a web conference the weekend of June 10.
