Nurse Practitioner Postgraduate Fellowship in Primary Care

Our Mission

Our Mission The mission of the Montefiore Medical Group's (MMG) Nurse Practitioner Fellowship is to expand access to primary care in the medically and socially complex community clinics in the Bronx. By empowering new clinicians with the skills needed to provide high-quality, team-based, equity-driven primary care, this fellowship will advance overall health and wellness, and promote positive health outcomes in the communities MMG serves.

Our Vision

Our vision is to graduate competent and confident Nurse Practitioners (NP) dedicated to providing high-performance primary care in Montefiore Medical Group’s community healthcare clinics. Clinicians exit the program with improved job satisfaction and a strong commitment to quality of care for their patients in underserved communities. We aim to graduate clinical leaders who are committed to improving health outcomes for the individual patients they care for and the health system in the Bronx as a whole.

Our Goals

  • To expand access to high-quality primary care in the communities served by the Montefiore Medical Group. This Bronx-based fellowship prepares Nurse Practitioner providers to meet the specific needs in the MMG community clinics.
  • To decrease attrition of the primary care workforce by improving each provider’s clinical skills, confidence and job satisfaction. New Nurse Practitioner providers are given a strong foundation of readiness from which to practice while inspiring academic and professional excellence.
  • To support competence and mastery in all domains of primary care. With a highly structured transition experience, this fellowship focuses on the social determinants of health, preparing each practitioner to proudly serve medically and socially complex communities.
  • Increase the number of Nurse Practitioner providers who then serve as leaders in the field of community health. We aim to inspire our practitioners to train the next generation of Nurse Practitioner providers, thereby improving both the quality of care and overall health conditions in underserved communities.
