Advanced Practice Provider, Hematology and Hematologic Malignancies, School of Medicine, Hematology and Medical Oncology

Tracking Code23599932040728Job Description

The Section of Hematology and Medical Oncology at Boston University School of Medicine/Boston Medical Center is seeking an advanced practice provider to support its rapidly expanding programs in hematology and hematologic malignancies. The section is an integral part of the BU-BMC Cancer Center and provides a full range of cancer care to a diverse patient population in the city of Boston.

Advanced practice providers in the section work closely with physicians in a shared practice model. APPs provide care for patients throughout the course of their illness and are involved in initial treatment planning and counseling, assessments and supportive care during chemotherapy treatment, and surveillance and follow up care after completion of treatment. In addition to working collaboratively with physicians, they play an integral role coordinating care with other subspecialties, including radiation oncology, and surgical oncology. The cancer center includes an active cancer clinical trials program, and provides a full range of supportive services, including social work, palliative care, nutrition support, genetic counseling, and patient navigation.

Advanced practice providers participate in tumor boards and teaching conferences, and are encouraged to participate in multiple other educational opportunities available within the Cancer Center and the Boston University School of Medicine. Teaching and mentoring opportunities for NP and PA students from area programs, including the PA program at Boston University, are also available. Advance practice providers receive faculty appointments in the Section of Hematology and Medical Oncology commensurate with their experience.

Required Skills

NP or PA certification is required. A minimum of 2 years of practice experience is preferred, although outstanding candidates at the beginning of their careers will also be considered. Additional language skills (Spanish, Haitian Creole, Portugese) are helpful.

Do not apply through the BU Careers Website. Interested candidates should email CV and cover letter to Casaundra Knight: casaundra.knight@bmc.org.

We are an equal opportunity employer, and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, physical or mental disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, military service, pregnancy or pregnancy-related condition, or because of marital, parental, or veteran status. We are a VEVRAA Federal Contractor.

The Difference Is Our DNA

What compelled the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to award Boston University a grant to fight newborn mortality in Zambia? Why did Martin Luther King, Jr. adopt BU as a place where he could hone his message of justice and equality? And what is the catalyst that prompts 32,557 students from 135 countries to call BU their home every semester? It’s in our DNA: an inherent desire in each of our students, faculty, and staff to vigorously and dauntlessly pursue knowledge—and embrace the unlimited possibilities that come with it.

A Community Unlike Any Other

As you can see below, it takes people, ideas, and a little luck (Boston, you’re our town) to make BU what it is today: one of the most dynamic universities in the world.

Celebrated thinkers: On any given day, students will find themselves mesmerized by Nobel Prize winners, a poet laureate, and the first biomedical engineer ever to receive a MacArthur Foundation “Genius Award,” among others.

Extraordinary teaching: When a classroom starts to percolate with new ideas, it’s because our faculty of scholars and accomplished practitioners know how to ignite students’ imaginations. That’s why we reward our best teachers with BU’s most prestigious honor: The Metcalf Cup and Prize.

Groundbreaking research: With faculty dedicated to a creative, interdisciplinary approach to problem solving, BU has become a leading global research institution—propelled forward by over $350 million a year in sponsored program revenue.

World-class students: Elite students from all 50 states and 135 countries pursue higher education on BU campuses in Boston and at programs in L.A., D.C., and more than 30 other cities on six continents.

A city within a city: Today, 80% of our undergrads live on campus, which could explain the 525 student activity groups alone.

The greatest college town in the world: Boston. ’Nuff said.
