Clinical experiences.

A 12 month FQHC-based residency program that prepares residents for full and autonomous expert care of complex underserved populations.


Precepted Continuity Clinics
5 sessions/week
Precepted clinics are the cornerstone of the residency. In these clinics, the FNP residents build their own patient panel while having the support and guidance of an experienced YVFWC provider dedicated to them.

Specialty Rotations
2 to 4 sessions/week x 1/month
Residents enhance their skills in areas of high-volume/high-burden/high-risk situations most commonly encountered in the setting of the FQHC. Rotations can include: Orthopedics, Dermatology, Women’s Health, Pediatrics, Newborn/nursery, HIV care, Immediate Care, Podiatry, Cardiology, ENT, and Adult Behavioral Health.

Mentored Clinics
3 sessions/week
During mentored clinics, the FNP residents will work with an experienced provider seeing patients at the delegation of the preceptor. Mentored clinics give the residents an opportunity for continued learning and to see how other providers manage their workflows.

Didactic Education Sessions
1 session/week
Continued learning is offered through live, web-based sessions and a varied Lunch and Learn program put on by the program preceptors. Learning sessions will be a mix of presentation, discussion, and hands-on training.
