How Tumor Boards Work

view full-size video

The centerpiece of the clinical cancer program is the tumor boards and multidisciplinary clinics where specialists from Surgery, Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Radiology and Pathology evaluate and discuss patients for whom a multidisciplinary approach is being considered.

Patients can request that their care be discussed by a tumor board. The multidisciplinary group will collectively design the best course of action for each patient.

The new patient coordinators at the designated contact number will assist in setting up the appointment, outlining what medical information to collect and bring, and what insurance information is required.

To schedule an appointment, referring physicians and patients should call the phone numbers listed below.
