Postgraduate Residency Programs

America's First Family Nurse Practitioner Residency Training Program

In 2007, the Community Health Center, Inc., headquartered in Middletown, CT launched the first-in-the-nation formal Nurse Practitioner Residency Training Program, to support the transition from new NP to full-scope primary care provider.

The goal is to provide new Nurse Practitioners with the depth, breadth, volume, and intensity of clinical training necessary to serve as primary care providers in the complex setting of the country's FQHCs. The NP Residency is a 12-month, full-time employment opportunity, followed by a one year post-residency commitment at CHC. 

The 2017-2018 class is the 11th class accepted into the program. Our residents have come from: Alabama, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, Washington D.C., United Kingdom, and Vancouver, BC, Canada.
