Do I need my PA or NP license prior to the Fellowship start date?

With regards to your testing, certification, and licensure, the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA) provides results quickly — usually within a couple weeks. The State of Utah has a provisional license clause that allows you to practice while you are in the process of obtaining your official license. Intermountain Medical Center provides this same provisional status as well.

However, there must be some flexibility because you cannot officially start until you have your DEA. In years past, we have allowed for flexible start dates based on this bottleneck.


Is there a required format or template for my letter of recommendations?

No particular format or template is required for letters of recommendation.


What else should I keep in mind with my letters of recommendation?

Your letters should represent your desire to work specifically in Trauma and Critical Care, and what you stand to gain or how you plan to grow with regards to your post-graduate time. Letters should come from preceptors, attending physicians, and other individuals who have known you for a long enough time to establish your credibility as a worthy candidate.


Do I receive a credential after completion of the Fellowship?

Upon fulfilling the requirements of the program, the Fellow will receive a certificate of completion.
