Become a Ladies First Provider

Ladies First has identified specialized roles for delivery of its clinical services. 

  • Screening Providers routinely perfom women's annual exams
  • Clinical Consultant and Resource Providers offer specialty services including laboratory, imaging and breast or cervical specialist consultation

Screening Providers will generally:

  • Determine eligibility and ideally serving as the patient’s medical home; 
  • Refer patients to appropriate Ladies First providers (imaging centers and specialists) for additional services when necessary;
  • Provide Ladies First with data about patients they have screened.

Clinical Consultant and Resource Providers have a much more limited role in comparison to that of the Screening Provider. In general, they:

  • Accept referrals from Ladies First Screening Providers for further diagnostic testing and consultation;
  • Notify Ladies First and the Screening Provider of results of consultations, examinations, or diagnostic work done.​
