Summary of "Response to "Training Nurse Practitioners and Physicians' Assistants in a University Fellowship Program: Implementation and Challenges"."

Caldwell and colleagues, in their Letter to the Editor entitled "Training Nurse Practitioners and Physicians' Assistants in a University Fellowship Program: Implementation and Challenges", describe the establishment of a rheumatology training program for nurse practitioners (NPs) and physician assistants (PAs). We read with interest the training model outlined and applaud their efforts for the work that has been accomplished at their institution. Their described plan of immersing NP and PA fellows in the clinical and educational activities of their Division, including integrating the NP and PA fellows with the physician first-year fellows, is an approach that will certainly enrich the professional development of NP/PAs new to rheumatology practice.
