Changes to APP Structure in 2024

In 2024, National Jewish Health will be implementing a new APP leadership structure to elevate our APP workforce with greater alignment in reporting, oversight, and support for professional growth. It also will better integrate APPs  within our faculty medical practice. Moving forward, APPs across the organization will report directly to advanced practice leaders, with indirect reporting to Division and Department leaders. This matrixed reporting structure is critical to the success of our new structure, with APPs fully integrated into the faculty medical practice. 

The APP structure will be implemented in a phased approach, beginning with three APP Manager positions. Managers will oversee APPs across one or more Divisions in partnership with Division Chiefs and other physician leaders in these areas. Additionally, APP Lead roles will be implemented to represent front-line APPs and teams across related sub-specialty programs. 

A series of “APP Open Forum” meetings will be held to discuss this new structure, and more details will follow regarding opportunities to apply for these new leadership positions.
