Provide Collaborative Care

Advanced Practice Providers

With more than 600 Advanced Practice Providers (APPs) employed at MSK, it is vital that we stay connected! Advance Practice Providers, including Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants, collaborate with physicians and other health professionals to develop and enact a plan of care.

APPs perform histories and physical examinations, order and evaluate testing and imaging, make diagnoses, and prescribe pharmacologic and other interventions. APPs are members of numerous teams across MSK, providing continuity and excellence in patient care.

“I value the connection I make with patients through direct care that allows me to be a resource of support and education. I also appreciate the daily support I receive from the doctors and nursing staff I work with.”
