Dominique C. Murphy, MMSc, PA-C
Dominque C. Murphy, MMSc, PA-C, is Instructor in the Department of Physician Assistant Studies at MGH Institute of Health Professions. She has had the opportunity to practice in several different patient care settings as a Physician Assistant. She is passionate about caring for and developing longstanding patient relationships with medically complex and underserved populations.
She started her career as a hospitalist at Boston Medical Center and then as part of inpatient medical oncology teams at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Over the past 5 years, she has transitioned her focus to primary care in a community-based setting. She has served the East Boston community as a part of the Family Medicine Department at the East Boston Neighborhood Health Center. She thoroughly enjoys practicing in this culturally and medically diverse setting.
Her interest in teaching has stemmed from opportunities to precept many PA and medical students during their Internal/Family Medicine and Oncology clinical rotations. She also lectured at Tufts University Physician Assistant Program in topics of Oncology. She looks forward to expanding my teaching experience at that institute.
