The Physician Assistant (PA) is responsible for assisting the Program Attending physicians in the medical management of hematologic (including BMT) and solid tumor oncology patients, as well as patients receiving elective chemotherapy. Inpatient PAs will be expected to collaborate and cross- train with all of the inpatient teams. The PA works closely with the physician and nursing staff to develop and coordinate a plan of care designed to meet the physical, psychological and social needs of patients and their families. Professional collaboration between inpatient and the ambulatory setting is expected by all PAs.
Dana-Farber Cancer Institute is honored to be one of the organizations to receive the American Academy of PAs’ (AAPA) Center for Healthcare Leadership and Management (CHLM) 2020-2021 Employer of Excellence Award. The EOE Awards, the first and only PA-specific award program for organizations, is designed to showcase employers that have implemented practices that create positive work environments for PAs and encourage collaborative provider teams.
