From ivory tower to next-door neighbor

Cancer centers, community physicians, access to cancer care

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

When academic centers open satellite offices in your town, where does that leave community-based oncologists? Local doctors offer continuity of care; cancer centers offer specialized expertise. So can we all just get along? General oncologists need to embrace the experience of their colleagues from academia, and academics need to build bridges to the community and use their clout to help provide cancer care to those without access.
