Advanced Practice Clinicians
Advance Practice Clinicians (APCs) are a specially trained group of health professionals - both clinical registered nurse practitioners and physician assistants - who provide quality medical care and treatment to patients, under the guidance of their supervising physicians.
APCs are responsible for ordering and interpreting blood work, diagnostic tests and radiologic scans. They can also prescribe medications for patients. One of the primary roles for the APCs at Fox Chase is to treat patients in the Survivor Clinics.
