Advanced Practice Provider Council (APPC)

The purpose of the APPC is to monitor, evaluate, and provide representation regarding operational, research, policy, and legislative issues that impact practice and/or clinical scope of Advanced Practice Providers.

In addition, the APPC will collectively determine implementation of any such standards agreed upon by the Council, in accordance with mission, vision and values of SUNY Upstate Medical University, via committee or subcommittee participation, education and communication, as well as through divisional leadership and guidance. Further, the APPC will provide ongoing Advanced Practice Providers educational opportunities as well as recognizing outstanding clinicians within all fields of practice.

The APPC utilizes a Shared Governance framework which promotes and expects individuals within their respective professions to participate in shared decision making as a critical component of their professional responsibility. The purpose is to drive and safeguard our practice, regardless of setting, in conjunction with Upstate's mission, vision values, our professional organizational standards, as well as, legal and regulatory agency requirements.
