How to apply to APP positions

Which positions to apply for

Most hiring managers are looking for a provider:

  • With relevant experience, or at least a clinical rotation, within the posted specialty
  • Passionate about the specialty/focus you are applying for

So, apply for positions based on what you're interested in and in which you have completed a rotation. For example, if you are interested in working within an acute setting, you ideally should have completed a clinical rotation in a hospital or acute care environment. If you are interested in working in an outpatient family medicine clinic, you ideally should have completed a family or internal medicine rotation.

When thinking about positions to apply for:

  • Consider whether you are looking for an inpatient or outpatient position. Do you want a hybrid position that works both inpatient and outpatient?
  • Are you passionate about a certain specialty because of personal experiences? Do you want to work in a certain specialty, or are you wanting a broader experience or patient panel?


  • Suggest focusing your application on positions and specialties in which you are interested in working.
  • Do not recommend applying for positions across multiple specialties or focus areas.
