Commonly asked questions about the Trauma and Critical Care Post-Graduate Fellowship at Intermountain Medical Center can be found below. For additional questions, please contact Annika Kay.
Candidates who are flexible, quick on their toes, love adrenaline, and have a strong work ethic and understand sacrifice and team dynamics are ideal. Additionally, candidates who demonstrate maturity, interest in leadership, and are self-starters have generally been the candidates of choice in the past.
We currently accept only one Fellow per year.
No preference is given to fresh/new grads versus those who are in different fields of medicine and want to move into the field of Trauma and Critical Care. We have accepted both varieties of PAs and NPs in the past.
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.
No particular format or template is required for 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.
Upon fulfilling the requirements of the program, the Fellow will receive a certificate of completion.
