Family Nurse Practitioner Residency Program
The post-graduate Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) residency at Community Health Connections offers the opportunity for professional development and additional skills training in a community health center. This 12-month program prepares FNPs to meet the needs of the culturally diverse and clinically complex patients commonly seen in a community health center practice.

MWCC Dental Assistant and Hygiene Programs
Community Health Connections partners with Mount Wachusett Community College to educate Dental Assistants and Dental Hygienists. The programs are located at Fitchburg Community Health Center, which also serves as the clinical site. This provides the students with real life experience in caring for patients and offers patients a low cost option for preventive dental care.
Dental Residency Program
Each year New York University’s Langone Health System Dental Residency Program sends dentists to Fitchburg Community Health Center to further their training. These dentists use their skills helping to care for patients while learning about the daily operations of a busy dental practice.
Community Health Connections works with various schools and institutions of higher learning to offer clinical experience for individuals training in healthcare professions.
