Cardiothoracic surgery is an increasingly complex surgical subspecialty that requires highly skilled clinical teams to achieve optimal results and outcomes. While advanced practice providers (APPs), such as physician assistants (PAs) and nurse practitioners (NPs), have become essential members of these teams, standardized APP training programs beyond traditional NP and PA primary care-focused education are not widely available. To meet this need, the Emory Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery has established a formal training program in cardiothoracic surgery for APPs that provides a more comprehensive, diverse, and efficient educational experience than traditional on-the-job training.
The official mission of the Emory Cardiothoracic Advanced Practice Provider Fellowship is to educate and train certified APPs so that they will have the knowledge and skill required to provide the highest quality clinical and surgical care for cardiothoracic surgery patients. This purpose is driven by the desire to produce clinicians who are completely dedicated to improving the quality and longevity of patients' lives. We also plan to advance and solidify the important role APPs have in cardiothoracic surgery teams, and to develop their ability to contribute to the advancement of cardiothoracic surgery.
