Be a WellNow Fellow

WellNow’s Fellowship is proud to be accredited by
the College of Urgent Care Medicine® (CUCM) and
the Urgent Care Association® (UCA).

Get started

Become the provider who changes someone’s idea of urgent care.

The WellNow way of care is special – it demands compassion and excellence at every touch point. When you become a Fellow here, you’ll learn from the best to provide the best to our patients and communities. You’ll learn how to go above and beyond what someone would expect from their urgent care experience, and show how everyday care can truly matter. And when you help our reputation grow in that way, you’ll grow too – this program is designed as the first open door of many as you transform your career within WellNow.

All it takes is the first step.
Classes begin in February and August every year.

Have a job that only
adds to your life.

Urgent care is one of the fastest growing medical practices – people are trusting us more and more to help treat their everyday ailments. As a Fellow – and a potential future WellNow provider – you’ll gain firsthand experience in how our intentional, personable care and our culture can make a world of difference to the patients you see each day, all while helping you maintain personal work-life balance.

Learn the ropes,
from the best.

Our mentors provide in-depth and industry-best clinical training for each of our existing roles as you work together to identify your skills – and keep building on them. When you learn from the best, you’ll have an exhaustive and inspired know-how for what it takes to run both a successful urgent care facility and your own successful career.
