Advanced Practice Registered Nurses / Physician Assistants
The fellowship at the Birth Center of Boulder is an opportunity for nurse-midwives seeking mentorship and professional growth within a midwife-led free-standing birth center in Boulder, CO. The focus of this fellowship is to provide mentorship, clinical experience, and enhanced education within a structured program. This 12-month program will guide you through well-woman care throughout the lifespan, comprehensive maternity care in an out-of-hospital setting, community building, the integrative model of care, and communication skills within the larger healthcare system.
The BCoB model of care is unique in that all births, including waterbirth, are attended by two CNMs who provide full-scope care for mother and babe, including home visits at 1-2 days postpartum, and clinic visits at 7-10 days postpartum. We provide 1 hr initial visits, 30 minute AP visits, and 1 hr for annuals. You will be joining a team of 6 CNMs who do between 15-20 births per month and also provide limited ultrasound, integrative health, in-house acupuncture, and classroom space for education, movement, and community support for families. We have a strong relationship with our local community hospital where we can refer and transfer within 8 minutes into a hospital-based midwifery practice and collaborative OBGYN group. Our consulting group of MFM physicians also perform our anatomy and growth ultrasounds.
The fellowship role will include four clinic days and ten 24hr on-call shifts in a 4-week period. Structured meetings with your fellowship directors will be scheduled monthly for support and collaboration. Salary for this 12-month comprehensive fellowship is $60,000 and includes health benefits and 2 weeks of clinic PTO. Our goal at the end of this 12-month program is for fellows to become midwives that are confident, autonomous, and prepared to contribute their talents and experience to positive change within our healthcare system.
We invite all AMCB board-certified nurse-midwives to apply by November 1, 2019 with a proposed start date of December 1, 2019. Please email CV, letter of interest, and 3 references to Renee@birthcenterofboulder.com
