Six N.C. Clinicians Complete Primary Care Training and Enhancement Mini-Fellowship at Duke Physician Assistant Program

Six North Carolina clinicians — also preceptors to Duke University medical, nursing and PA students — recently completed a three-day Primary Care Training and Enhancement Program Faculty Development Mini-Fellowship at the Duke Physician Assistant Program.

Mini-fellowship participants were:

  • Lindsey Fiacco, MD – Duke Primary Care, Chapel Hill
  • James Hampson, PA-C – Kidzcare Pediatrics, Sanford
  • Divya Vodikad Jaiprakash, MD – Duke Primary Care-North Hills, Raleigh
  • Katy Johnson, PA-C --- Oceanside Family Medicine, Shallotte
  • Julia Lockamy Lucas, NP -- Llibott Consultorios Medicos
  • Natalie Tammen, PA-C --- Duke Family Medicine Center, Durham

The goal of the mini-fellowship is to equip preceptors to become effective clinician-educators who can develop and implement curricula, and facilitate group QI projects that will address the needs of vulnerable populations in North Carolina. The mini-fellowship is part of a Health Resources and Services Administration grant awarded to Duke University in 2016 for primary care training and enhancement. Learn more about the mini-fellowship.

Laresia Farrington serves as the program/grant coordinator.
