Advanced Practice Provider - PRN
University of Chicago
Our section prides itself on its strong and integrated programs in clinical care, research, and education. The strength of our clinical programs is essential not only to our ability to provide excellent patient care, but to our ability to perform research that advances the frontiers of clinical practice and to train future generations of physicians in hospital medicine. Our research programs allow us to advance the scientific basis and clinical practice of hospital medicine and to train hospital medicine researchers who can carry this scientific mission into the future, often finding inspiration in the desire to solve clinical dilemmas we encounter in our own practices. Likewise, our training programs allow us to bring talented young persons into the relatively new field of hospital medicine, preparing them for productive and sustainable careers as clinicians, researchers, and educators. Our APPs are a vital component of our section. They work at the highest scope of practice clinically and have opportunities for robust mentorship to pursue passions within the academic realm.
