I love the patients I am able to work with here. A typical day includes patient teaching, coordinating appointments and procedures, and requesting pathology services. My coworkers are very supportive and friendly. Management is inexperienced and the department has expanded too quickly, which can often be overwhelming for managers. The most unpleasant part of my job is a physical environment that is cramped and shared by too many people, and not conducive to focusing and staying on-task. The hardest part of this job is trying to conform to a zero tolerance for individuality, and this can be a stifling and sometimes impossible standard to meet. I love supporting my patients through their cancer diagnosis and sequelae throughout their trial involvement, and I have a strong calling to work with patients facing potentially life-limiting illness.
Good benefits, competitive salary, challenging duties and interesting work
Lack of privacy, stifling and unrealistic corporate culture
