Background

Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center’s Advanced Practice Provider (APP) Fellowship Program provides nurse practitioners and physician assistants with the opportunity to train at one of the top cancer centers in the United States. This fellowship program began over 40 years ago in Palliative and Hospice Care with one APP fellow, and it now accepts 20 fellows across 7 distinct disciplines every year. The fellows are mentored by an interdisciplinary team of experienced oncology clinicians who serve patients from around the world.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide an oncology-intensive postgraduate academic program for APPs that promotes collaborative, high-quality, evidence-based, and compassionate patient-centered care to a diverse patient population in alignment with the institutional mission of MSK.

Fellows will participate in clinical skills practicums, research, didactic learning, and clinical rotations on medical and surgical oncology and consultative services. Upon graduation from the fellowship, the APP will be proficient in the delivery of exceptional specialized cancer care.

MSK APP Fellowship Goals:

  • provide APPs with the competency and readiness to practice in a prominent, fast-paced cancer care institution
  • establish proficiency in the skills required to care for a patient with cancer
  • educate and train APPs as independent practitioners within a specialized, interdisciplinary team environment
