Welcome New APC Directors
Jul 5, 2017 10:00 AM
Introducing our new IM APC Directors
As the clinical side of the Department of Internal Medicine has grown dramatically over the last few years, we have had a large increase in the number of advanced practice clinicians (APC) who have joined our team. To better strategically manage this group of providers, we have created two new positions within our clinical administration:
- Director of Advanced Practice Clinicians, Inpatient
- Director of Advanced Practice Clinicians, Outpatient
These directors will be responsible for supporting the overall direction, leadership and comprehensive oversight of APCs on the inpatient and outpatient services respectively. The directors will work collaboratively with a large network of physician leaders, directors and administrators to ensure high quality patient care, and to promote personalized health care in an accessible, patient-friendly, research-focused environment. They will work directly with frontline lead APCs and division leaders to facilitate recruitment and retention of high caliber APCs.
Please welcome our new APC Directors:
