Executive Director, Advanced Practice Providers (ED-APPs)

Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK)


Title: Executive Director, Advanced Practice Providers (ED-APPs)

Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK), the world’s oldest and largest private cancer center, has devoted more than 130 years to exceptional patient care, leading-edge research, and superb educational programs. Close collaboration between bench and clinical science is a unique strength of MSK, enabling it to provide the best available cancer care as it works to discover more effective strategies to prevent, control, and ultimately cure cancer. MSK’s educational programs train many of the leading physicians and scientists of the future; the knowledge transmitted in its programs has far-reaching influence on cancer treatment and biomedical research around the globe.

For further information on MSK, visit its Website:




MSK is seeking a transformational, visionary leader to manage the integration of its Advanced Practice Providers (APPs) into a successful practice that will implement state-of-the-art patient-care models aligned with the institution’s future vision and operational needs. The success of the APPs practice is key to MSK’s long-term strategy, and as a result, the number of Providers is planned to continue to grow accordingly.


This newly created position will report directly to the Deputy Physician in Chief of Clinical Operations and to the EVP & Hospital Administrator, with an indirect reporting relationship to the SVP & Chief Nursing Officer (CNO). A key objective for the ED-APPs is the transformation of MSK’s patient- care models to ensure that they support APPs working at the top of their licensures.


The ED-APPS will direct the operational and human-resource functions of the clinical program. This includes managing both the fiscal and informational requirements of the department. S/he will provide leadership to over 500 APPs (i.e., Nurse Practitioners/Advanced Practice Nurses, and Physician Assistants) through excellent management, coaching, and mentoring in order to make sure their development is in concert with MSK’s mission, values, and goals.


Practicing outstanding performance-management skills, s/he will cultivate and foster an empowered and engaged workforce by establishing and maintaining a practice environment consistent with MSK’s commitment to patient- and family-centered care, new knowledge and innovation, team collaboration, and evidence-based practice. By building collaborative relationships with multiple counterparts and key stakeholders, including physician, nursing, and administrative leadership, the ED-APPs will assure the advancement of organizational goals, programs, and projects.


The ED-APPs will be responsible for ensuring that policies and procedures regarding hiring, credentialing, privileging, care-delivery model, performance appraisal/competency assessment are expertly met. In addition, s/he will help create a continuing-education curriculum that aligns with appropriate career-progression plans customized for APPs.


The ED-APPs will develop well-structured metrics and data for assessing outcomes of APP quality-of-care, ensuring that APPs meet State and Federal regulatory-agency requirements. These metrics and data will provide accurate information for major changes and improvements going forward and will ensure that APPs participate in cost-saving and revenue-generating opportunities critical to MSK’s long-term goals.


The ED-APPs will be expected to represent the institution appropriately in all of his/her interactions and to role-model its core values and philosophy.


RESPONSIBILITIES: The specific responsibilities include, but are not limited to:




  • In collaboration with senior leadership, explore, recommend, develop, and implement new opportunities to optimize clinical care and enable better utilization of APPs to drive MSK’s growth and expansion.
  • Direct and prioritize resource allocation to ensure that service needs are met, while maintaining MSK’s quality standards.
  • Develop structured APP-associated metrics for assessing productivity and outcomes of APP quality of care and use data to identify and implement changes to optimize care- delivery models.
