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.
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: email@example.com.
