Fellowship Spotlight: Physician Assistant/Nurse Practitioner Pediatric Urgent Care Fellowship at Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters in Southeastern Virginia

By Julie Martin PA-C MAEd

The PA/NP Pediatric Urgent Care Fellowship is a collaboration between Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS), Children’s Speciality Group (CSG), and Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters (CHKD). CHKD is the leading children’s hospital in southeastern Virginia and has Urgent Care Centers throughout Hampton Roads, in Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, and Newport News. These busy clinics see more than 104,000 patients a year. The fellowship is designed for advanced practice providers who have newly graduated or those transitioning from another subspeciality. This July, the program will welcome its sixth cohort for this six-month learning experience.

The fellowship includes:

  1. Delivering evidence-based medical care at the three CHKD Urgent Care Centers with supportive and individualized mentorship
  2. Weekly didactic in-person lectures and workshops with a CHKD Emergency Department Physician, totaling 50 hours of continuing medical education
  3. Asynchronous learning assignments including articles and podcasts covering targeted content
  4. Rotations in various CHKD subspecialties including the Emergency Department (a Level 1 Trauma Center), Orthopedics, Sports Medicine, Dermatology, and Asthma/Allergy

Most graduates of this program seek out careers in pediatric urgent care, general pediatrics, or other related subspecialties. Applications for the 2024 cohort will open in January of 2024 and the fellowship will run from July-December of 2024.
