Our one-year, post-graduate fellowship program is appropriate for new NP and PA graduates, as well as experienced APPs wishing to change discipline or career paths.

Due to the pace that healthcare and modalities of healthcare delivery are growing and changing, we are seeking dynamic, inquisitive, hardworking and committed NPs and PAs eager to serve the populations and communities who seek care at Atrium Health. Our primary training location is Charlotte, NC with post-Fellowship employment eligibility at any of our enterprise locations in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, or Alabama.

Our graduates are highly competitive for employment and thrive within Atrium Health. The APP Fellowship experiences derived from quality clinical rotations, mentored professional activities, immersion into systems-based practice and experience with clinical scholarly work; allows the fellowship program to serve as an ideal pipeline of highly trained APPs across any of our geographic locations. We remain committed to training and retaining our graduates wherever and whenever possible.

Diversity and Inclusion

At Atrium Health, we are driven by our mission to improve health, elevate hope, and advance healing – for all. By creating an environment where differences are valued and inclusion is a way of life – where the care we deliver is truly “for all”.

To fulfill this responsibility, we constantly strive to be an inclusive, diverse, and respectful workplace. As our workforce becomes more diverse, Atrium Health becomes a stronger organization. We are able to provide more culturally competent and sensitive care, better serving our communities that rely on us.

As an academic program, we are committed to promoting the diversity, equity, and inclusion of all teammates and excelling in education that promotes the management of the complex health needs of our aging and diverse communities. The Diversity and Inclusion education is an essential part of our CORE Curriculum delivered to all APP Fellows that will seek to inform and address the limited healthcare access and disproportionately poor health outcomes of minority groups.
