Education is a pillar of the mission and a core value of the Moses/Weitzman Health System, with educational opportunities offered for individual practitioners, organizational and entire healthcare systems. Educational opportunities with MWHS and our affiliate organizations are available through synchronous and asynchronous offerings, as well as joint sponsorships. We invite you to explore the educational offerings on primary care health, related and intersectional topics, designed for a variety of specific health care audiences and environments by experts and practitioners around our System.

While Fellows are based near Middletown, Connecticut, they work in-person and virtually to support sites throughout Connecticut and the System hubs in California, Colorado and Washington D.C. Applications for the 2025-26 program year open in June 2024.

A National First: Nurse Practitioner Residency Training Program at CHC

The American health care system faces unprecedented demand for primary care providers who are trained to organize and deliver care that is timely, safe, effective, affordable, and culturally competent. While Nurse practitioners are critically important primary care providers—especially in the FQHC environment—they have historically had to assume roles in primary care without the benefit of formal post-graduate residency training programs to support the transition from new nurse practitioner to primary care provider. To address this need, MWHS affiliate Community Health Center founded the country’s first formal residency training program for family nurse practitioners in 2007, which has now grown to include tracks for psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners, adult gerontology nurse practitioners, and pediatric nurse practitioners.
