Position Details

Position Description

The Department of Radiation Oncology has an outstanding opportunity for a full-time Associate/Advanced Practice Provider (ARNP or PA-C). The incumbent’s primary site of practice will be at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center South Lake Union located at 825 Eastlake Avenue East and is fully staffed by UW Department of Radiation Oncology faculty physicians. 

The selected candidate will be proposed for appointment to the full-time faculty as a Teaching Associate at the University of Washington with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2024 or earlier.  Teaching Associates hold annual appointments that align with a 12-month service period (July 1-June 30) and may be reappointed to subsequent annual terms.  Faculty with 12-month service periods are paid for 11 months of service over a 12-month period (July-June), meaning the equivalent of one month is available for paid time off. 

The ARNP/PA-C is a certified physician assistant or advanced registered nurse practitioner with an integrated role which includes clinical and education components. The ARNP/PA-C works in collaboration with physicians and actively coordinates the complex care of cancer patients undergoing brachytherapy and external beam radiotherapy, with a focus on gynecologic and gastrointestinal patients.  While working in collaboration with physicians, the role will function independently in their responsibilities.

Under the general supervision of an attending physician, the incumbent will have the following responsibilities: provide perioperative patient assessment for anesthesia suitability; management of acute on-treatment medical issues; coordinate care among the multi-disciplinary team that includes anesthesiologists, medical oncologists, gynecologic oncologists, and referring radiation oncologists; manage side-effects following post-treatment period; order appropriate laboratory and radiographic studies; prescribe medications; participate and assist in brachytherapy procedures; refer patient to other specialists as necessary.  The incumbent will also refer patients to community agencies and other resources to promote optimal adjustment and functioning, document thorough dictation and chart notes in accordance with UWMC and UWP compliance requirements for billing.

FHCC requires all individuals, including University of Washington faculty clinicians, working at a FHCC facility to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Unlike UW’s vaccination policy, the FHCC policy does not provide for religious or medical exemptions. As such, a UW offer associated with this recruitment is contingent upon, among other things, the preferred candidate demonstrating that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by no later than the commencement of their appointment.

The base salary range for this position will be: $9,167 - $14,334 per month ($110,004 - $172,008 annually) commensurate with experience and qualifications, or as mandated by a U.S. Department of Labor prevailing wage determination.
