Educational opportunities

Educational opportunities for an APP at Ohio State are diverse and accessible. New hires are provided individualized onboarding experiences and access to one of the nation’s largest health sciences libraries and a state-of-the-art simulation lab. Continuing education (CE) and continuing medical education (CME) offerings are plentiful.

We gather for monthly APP grand rounds and host the largest APP conference in the region each year. We offer clinical advancement opportunities and a generous tuition benefit toward classes at The Ohio State University. Our APPs serve as preceptors in clinical rotations for both PA and APRN students.
