This online program for physician assistants newly employed in medical oncology facilitates the development of knowledge and skills necessary for PAs to assume their clinical responsibilities. Crafted specifically for each PA, the individualized program plan ensures the modules taken throughout the program are directly related to the PA's current clinical role. These evidence-based modules cover all aspects of cancer patient care, including malignancy-based modules, oncologic emergencies, cancer-related conditions, and clinical and procedural skills. Modules are instructed by clinical experts.
