UVA Health Advanced Practice Providers


Celebrating our Nominees

We began our APP Week grand celebrations with recognizing our UVA APP leaders and the APPs who were nominated by their peers as outstanding providers in areas of leadership, scholarship, DEI, excellence, education and collaboration at a social gathering in Fralin museum on 9/25/2023.

We had over 60 attendees and it provided an opportunity to appreciate everyone’s exceptional contributions individually and meaningfully connect with other APPs within UVA Health.

Happy APP Week and looking forward to seeing everyone at the APP Recognition Ceremony in Pinn Hall Conference Center on 9/29/2023 from 11:30 to 1:15 PM



Let's Celebrate!

UVA Health boasts over 600 Advanced Practice Providers elevating the fields of medicine and nursing to ensure our patients and communities receive quick, accessible, safe, high-quality, evidence-based patient care. To represent this impactful group, the APP Council was formed in 2021, expanding representation to include NPs, PAs, CNSs, CNMs, CRNAs, Audiologists and Genetic Counselors.  We celebrate APP week by recognizing over 50 exemplary APPs who were nominated by their peers as outstanding providers in the areas of leadership, scholarship, clinical excellence, inter-professional collaboration, and diversity, equity, and inclusion at a celebratory event at the Fralin Museum on September 25th. The winners of each nomination category will be announced on September 29th at a house-wide ceremony in Pinn Hall. During this week, find an APP in your department and acknowledge them for the value they provide to our institution and our patients!
Happy National Advanced Practice Provider Week to all of our amazing APPs. 
Thank you for all that you do each and every day.  You are extraordinary!
