Job Description:We are excited to be hiring two Advanced Practice Providers to support our new state-of-the-art Infusion Clinic, opening at Primary Children's Gail Miller Campus in Lehi, Utah. Upon hire, the APPs will complete onboarding, training, and provide patient care at our Salt Lake City campus until the new campus opens, anticipated to go-live in January 2024.

While providing care in the Infusion Clinic, the APPs will have a primary focus on administering and monitoring chemotherapy, blood product, and other infusions for pediatric patients.

Our team belongs to several national cancer research consortiums dedicated to improving care, treatments, and outcomes for pediatric patients across the Intermountain West.
