Advanced Practice Registered Nurses / Physician Assistants
ChristianaCare is looking for a Physician Assistant to join our innovative year-long post-graduate training program in Neonatology. The Neonatal PA Fellowship Program is a twelve-month intensive training program for Physician Assistants that provides mentoring, diverse clinical experience in our level II and III NICUs, and a customized didactic education in newborn medicine through case study, small-group discussion, simulation, and participation in department-wide lectures. This fellowship program is both supportive and challenging as the Neonatal PA Fellow will manage infants with a variety of complex diagnoses under the direct guidance and supervision of a neonatologist and experienced neonatal advanced practice provider. The program is perfect for an PA who is looking to develop into the role of a Neonatal PA in a structured environment with a Fellowship Coordinator providing guidance throughout the program.
The Neonatal PA Fellow will receive an annual salary of $78,000. Fellows are considered full-time employees of ChristianaCare with benefits. The expectation is that fellows who meet performance objectives and demonstrate ChristianaCare values will apply for permanent employment as a Neonatal PA with ChristianaCare after completing the program at a rate commensurate with +1 year of clinical experience.
This program allows for a supported transition into the role of Neonatal PA and we hope you consider joining ChristianaCare on this journey!
