Lyon-Martin Health Services’ NP Residency Program provides intensive clinical training in a fast-paced Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) in the heart of San Francisco with an integrated behavioral health, team-based model of primary care. Lyon-Martin Health Services provides quality primary care to women, lesbians, and transgender people regardless of their ability to pay.
Lyon-Martin is world-renowned for expertise and leadership in the field of transgender medicine. Forty-eight percent of the patient population identifies as transgender or gender-nonconforming and over seventy percent identifies as a sexuality other than straight. This program is specifically intended for new nurse practitioners who are committed to developing practice careers in the setting of safety net community health centers, with a focus on LGBTQI health.
The 12-month, full-time, paid position comes with full benefits and will prepare residents for the wide variety of complex clinical challenges most commonly encountered in community health settings through didactic trainings, specialty rotations, and dedicated preceptorship. Residents will maintain their own patient panel while a dedicated preceptor provides oversight and supervision.
Two residency spots will be available for the 2017-2018 year. Applications will be accepted until May 26, 2017, acceptance letters will be mailed out the first week of July, and the program start date is September 1, 2017.
