The Team

Provider Practice Essentials gives advanced practice providers the most concise and focused didactic and hands-on clinical skills workshop possible in a classroomPeriod.

Our experienced teaching faculty will equip you with clinical pearls, real-life experience, clinical decision-making skills, and also improve your documentation.  Although other programs try, they often miss the mark.  Our system carefully blends interactive classroom learning with procedures to allow you to perfect and undeniably master your skills!

This is unquestionably MUCH MORE THAN A PROCEDURE COURSE!  We also teach you how to integrate your procedures into your practice.  Indeed, with over 450 years of combined physician and APP experience, let us teach you how to be your best.

As a result of our program, the feedback we have received from employers and supervisors has been amazing.  Our team is chiefly dedicated to your success!

The Technology

Because we use the latest medical simulation technology, used in top medical schools, you will not only see, but feel as close to reality as possible when performing procedures in live patients.  Each class is led by a residency-trained, board certified physician and also an actively practicing APP who is a master of procedures.

All procedures are explicitly taught in a small group format.  As a result, you will get hands-on experience and  individual attention to practice and master these skills and apply them to your patients.

What’s more, we teach nearly every common procedure – from suturing to central lines.  This class is certainly designed for any provider in any practice setting!

The Certification

Most classes offer a few pieces of education, but PPE offers a solution that gives you the confidence you truly need, and the verification to back up our training.  You have the option to take a post-course examination and also earn a written certification and letter of reference from our medical director.  Above all, this is a great way to make you more marketable and document your skills!

As a result of working with, reviewing, and interviewing literally hundreds of providers, our team knows what to look for, what potential employers fear, and what strong providers crave. In a short and intensive two days we will give you the clinical confidence to work wherever you want, and also do so in whatever field you choose.
