Working for Huntsman Cancer Institute
Burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma are normal reactions to the abnormally stressful job of caring for those who are sick. Compassionate Workplace is a comprehensive, evidence-based program that fosters resiliency and supports the personal growth and development of our employees.
Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Commitment
At its core, our work aims to reduce human suffering. We are dedicated to creating an environment that not only promotes but insists upon equity, diversity, inclusion, and a cancer-free frontier for all communities, including our staff, providers, patients, and their loved ones.
Beyond a Job, Beyond a Cause
Each person who receives a diagnosis has an individual story. Each of those stories matter. We’re dedicated. Beyond a job, beyond a cause—because we not only conduct research and engage the community, we share time with the people who live with cancer. Their dignity, their care, and their cure is personal to us. We won’t stop.
