Physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants who have experience in providing child sexual abuse evaluations and have provided a minimum of 100 child sexual abuse evaluations within the past 3 years can apply to be designated CHAMP Providers using an expedited application.
The application process has these steps:
Submit an Expedited Provider application along with a current CV
Submit 3 letters of reference with one being from a current or most recent supervisor and one being from a current CHAMP Mentor (If your supervisor is a current CHAMP Mentor, only 2 letters of reference are needed.)
Submit documentation of completing the CHAMP coursework Evaluating Child Sexual Abuse (either a copy of the test results or a copy of the CME certificate)
You will also be asked to submit three of your most current child sexual abuse cases. The review requires submitting photodocumentation as well as written information. The case review forms do not contain information that identifies the patient. Your cases will be reviewed by CHAMP Mentors who have been blinded to your identity. After you submit your application and supporting materials, Linda Markell will send you the case review forms.
After your cases have been reviewed, Linda Markell will forward all your materials to the Application Committee of the CHAMP Advisory Board for consideration.
If you are approved to be a Provider, you will be invited to be part of the CHAMP Network and be listed as a Provider on the CHAMP website www.CHAMPprogram.com .
You can download the Expedited Provider application (PDF) or request that one be mailed to you. If you need help with downloading or opening the PDFs, please see below.
If you have questions or need an application, please contact Linda Markell, CHAMP Manager. MarkellL@upstate.edu
