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 on up-to-date diagnostic and treatment techniques.
Each year 10-12 clinicians are invited to come to the Washington University Knight ADRC for this all-expense-paid didactic training and interactive group training experience. Accepted clinician partners receive:
- 17-20 hours of AMA Category 1 CME credit
- Travel reimbursement
- Paid hotel accommodations and meals
- Certificate of completion
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 metro-adjacent Illinois. Advanced practice nurses and physician's assistants may also be considered for this program depending on their professional roles. 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 March 4-6, 2014.
Nominations for the program are accepted on a rolling basis until the program spaces are filled.
Space for the Clinician Partners Program is filled for 2014, but will be offered again in 2015. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to add your name to the contact list.
