Comprehensive Breast Program Team

Our Comprehensive Breast Program offers you the resources of a world-class medical center along with a personalized, integrated approach to your care.

What does "integrated" care look like?

Integrated care comes from the skills and talents of many providers throughout the medical center. It’s care that comes from a team made up of people who can address the unique needs of your condition and well-being. It’s care that starts at the moment you meet us and continues through survivorship and beyond. At every step, we treat you as a person, not a case number.

Integrated care also means there’s a lot happening on your behalf to give you the most up-to-date care possible. Your doctor may consult with colleagues to get second and third opinions on your treatment. At regular meetings of the Tumor Board, a group of providers—doctors, nurses, social workers and more—discuss the diagnosis and treatment of their patients. The process is both rigorous and collaborative. The result? You benefit from the knowledge and experience of a wide group of experts, including those who may not be directly involved in your care.

Precision Medicine: A Team Approach

At the Cancer Center, there are 15 teams, officially called “clinical oncology programs,” but often referred to simply as “tumor boards.” Each team focuses on a specific cancer and meets regularly to review patient cases and recommend treatment plans. Read more.
