Clinician Partners Program
The Clinician Partners Program (CPP), funded by grants from the National Institute on Aging, is a 3-day "mini-residency" for health professionals who serve older adults in rural areas of Missouri and Illinois. The primary goal of the CPP is to enhance local dementia-related diagnosis and care by educating a select group of clinicians in up-to-date diagnostic and treatment techniques.
Each year 15-18 clinicians will be invited to come to the Washington University Knight ADRC for this all-expense-paid didactic training, clinical observation, and interactive group training experience. Accepted clinician partners receive:
- A daily stipend
- 17-20 hours of AMA Category 1 CME credit
- Travel reimbursement
- Paid hotel accommodations and meals
- Program completion bonus
The program is open to clinicians (MDs and DOs) who provide primary care to older adults residing in rural or semi-rural areas of Missouri and (based on availability) surrounding states. Advanced practice nurses and physician's assistants may also be considered for this program depending on their professional roles, though benefits may vary slightly. Registered nurses, psychologists and social workers may also apply to audit the program to expand their knowledge base (space is limited).
The next session of the Clinician Partner’s Program is scheduled for Wednesday, April 10 - Friday, April 12th.
We are currently accepting nominations for the limited number of spaces in the session, and materials are linked below.
Nominations for the program are accepted on a rolling basis until the program spaces are filled.
Space for the Clinician Partner’s Program fills quickly, and will not be offered again until 2014.
