“This 2-day course was just what I needed to learn the skills that will help me to be more marketable! All instructors were awesome and the reference material on their website is invaluable. I highly recommend the Provider Practice Essentials class, especially for those practitioners just starting out in their new role.”

Michael Reddy, ARNP

The Team

Our live programs are taught by a clinical team that includes actively practicing, board certified physicians and advanced practice providers.

Our faculty are chosen for their experience and undergo a comprehensive orientation and training process to give you the best experience possible.

This experience will give you 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.  With over 450 years of combined physician and APP experience, let us teach you how to be your best.

Suturing skills workshop
Dan Harris, PA-C gives one-on-one suture training.

“Excellent course. I learned just as much from the providers teaching the content as I did from the course itself. It increased my knowledge base and in a fun, hands-on learning environment where the instructors were amazing and non-judgmental.”

Neida Blondet, APRN

The Technology

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 on live patients.  You will be taught by experts who perform these procedures daily.

Our small group format will give you hands-on experience and  individual attention. Become confident about everything we teach.

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!

“It is an amazing seminar! The content is truly essential for novice and for experienced providers as a wonderful review. The hands on stations for LPs, central lines, joint injections and several others were VERY good. The instructors were great…patient, knowledgeable, and offered any extra time needed! Definitely worth attending!!”

Mary Kuhn, APRN

The Certification

After years 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.

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!

“The teaching portion is so good with old school teaching and Mnemonics totally designed for retention and eventual recognition in the “real world” loved it loved it loved it. (Did I say I loved it?)”
