The goal of the project is to improve the quality of breast cancer care by training surgeons to coordinate with teams of cancer specialists. The surgery fellows accepted by the program will work with other surgeons, oncologists, pathologists, radiation oncologists, and cancer specialists to ensure breast cancer patients the best possible care. This approach to treatment brings physicians working in several disciplines together as they coordinate treatment efforts throughout the treatment process.

This multidisciplinary approach is part of the ACRC’s commitment to providing our patients with progressive cancer treatment that is personal and highly effective. Dr. Klimberg’s grant will emphasize the understanding of patients with benign and malignant breast diseases and develop a better treatment environment for patients.
