What our employees are saying

“One of the things I appreciate most about being a Physician Assistant here is the support of my colleagues. The doctors I work with are invested in my growth and always take time to share their expertise and the reasons behind their decision-making. Feeling valued and respected by my colleagues motivates me and gives me confidence as I move forward in my career. From my time working as a Nursing Assistant at Tufts Medical Center to my current role at Lowell General Hospital, I have felt that respect, empathy, and commitment to care.”
Heather Lacharite, Outpatient Nurse Practitioner Merrimack Valley Cardiology, Lowell General Hospital 
“When I was looking for a position, I knew I wanted to be somewhere that was well established and had a good name and was known for good care. Tufts Medicine was hiring, and I’ve been here for over three years now.  I have a good work-life balance and a lot of support from the physicians. To build a career as a PA, you want to start with heavy support and then gravitate toward more independence, and that’s really hard to do at independent practices. It’s a lot easier to grow here and feel supported and be able to go to anyone with questions at any time because you know the physicians here chose this position because they want to teach.”
Courtney White, Chief Physician Assistant Tufts Medical Center
