Advanced Practice Palliative Immersion Training

Where Learning Leaves the Classroom and Changes Practice


The APPI Training Program is designed for advanced practice providers seeking to enhance their communication and clinical management skills to better serve patients with complex, advanced illnesses. This evidence-based course is designed for all learner levels.
Trainees attend interactive lectures presented by expert faculty, and strengthen communication skills in a workshop with simulated patient encounter and real-time feedback. Our intimate, training cohorts foster networking and peer and faculty support and interaction. Regrettably due to COVID-19, clinical shadowing will not be available in the Fall 2020 session. Conferences will be held in-person if deemed permissible during COVID-19, and by Zoom if not.
