A Message from the Director of Advanced Practice
Hello, and welcome to our advanced practice careers
site. We are so glad you are considering
a career at Lahey. There are a number of
unique things about our system that we’d like to share with you.
At Lahey Hospital and Medical Center, advanced practitioners
work in almost every department and specialty.
Our CRNAs provide comprehensive anesthesia care, and our NPs and PAs
work in the outpatient, inpatient, surgical, medicine and emergency medicine
divisions. Some are PCPs and have their
own patient panels, some are specialists with highly technical procedural skill
and subspecialty knowledge. All
contribute to our team based care model, focusing on top-of-license practice
which puts the patient first. This
allows for optimal patient access to our primary care and subspecialty services
while also ensuring high career satisfaction for our advanced
Additionally, our advanced practitioners are part of the
medical staff. This comes with full
voting member rights and responsibilities, and is a clear demonstration of the
respect and collegial relationship the advanced practitioners enjoy with the
physicians. This has led to superior
practice collaboration and again, optimal patient care models.
The leadership structure for advanced practice at Lahey also
stands out. We have an Advanced Practice
Council which represents NPs, PAs, CRNAs, and LICSWs and meets regularly to
support AP practice. This is in addition
to local AP leadership structures also in place.
Our Director of Advanced Practice sits on the AP council and
reports to the Chief Medical Officer.
The Director role is critical in guiding the direction of AP practice at
Lahey, including assisting local divisions in strategic planning regarding AP
roles, guiding AP education at Lahey and sitting on various committees where
practice decisions are made.
Please reach out to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you
have any questions regarding advanced practice at Lahey. I strongly encourage you to apply for the
career path that fits you best.
Hopefully I’ll see you soon!
