Advanced Practice Providers

Our experienced team of advanced practice providers (APPs) is a great asset to our residency program. They are well integrated into our patient care teams to help with outpatient clinics, inpatient and emergency department consultations, and rounding on patients. Their experience at CMC helps to bring new residents quickly up to speed on many of the nuances of patient care and administrative aspects of working here. Including APPs on our teams also helps our residents to understand different patient care roles and how to work most efficiently with APPs after graduating.
