Thank you for your interest in becoming a patient or family advisor at MSK. Our mission is to integrate the patient and family perspective into every aspect of MSK’s efforts to prevent, diagnose, treat, and cure cancer. This program strengthens communication and collaboration among patients, families, clinicians, staff, and administrators to develop and improve programs, facilities, and services at MSK.

If you are a patient or family member of a person treated at MSK, you are eligible to apply for the advisor program.
