Working at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center: The Collaborative Spirit

VIDEO | 01:00

Hedvig Hricak, Chair of Radiology at Memorial Sloan Kettering, describes the passion and collaborative spirit that is evident across professional disciplines at the institution. The result is a powerful focus on patient care. Multidisciplinary disease management teams, pioneered at Memorial Sloan Kettering in the 1980s and subsequently adapted elsewhere in the form of tumor boards, bring together all members of a patient's care team, optimizing treatment. Team members work closely together, pooling expertise and supporting each other's work. As a result, the institution is a rewarding place to work and a place "to really excel and shine."
