Position description

This will require individuals to demonstrate adaptability, leadership skills and a keen interest in quality improvement. The NP or PA serving in this role will see all solid tumor types in collaboration with respective tumor-specific Oncology consultants, NP or PAs, fellows, RNs, and other supportive allied health staff.
