What is the Community Primary Care Provider Fellowship?
The Mount St. Joseph University Physician Assistant Program, along with institutional partner the University of Cincinnati Department of Family and Community Medicine, was awarded funding in September, 2018 for a new training project by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). Transformational Fellowship Training for Community Primary Care Champions is a $2 million, five-year award. The award will create a new faculty-development fellowship under Program Director Dr. Megan Rich. Early-career Primary Care Providers will be trained in leadership, healthcare transformation, and education through a curriculum built on quality improvement, the social determinants of health, substance use disorders, collaborative mental health care, medical education curriculum, and provider wellness. Each of the 20 fellows (2018-2023) will also complete a mentored practice transformation project through community-participatory learning.
This project is/was supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) under grant number, 1T13HP31904, Primary Care Training Enhancement: Training Primary Care Champions, $1,998,585.
