The mission of the Stanford Center for Clinical Research (SCCR) includes offering educational resources, training, and support for investigators and research staff.  We have invited the Assistant Professor of Medicine in Oncology, Dr. Manali I. Patel, MD, to provide you with the principles of oncology and treatments. The speaker will review etiologies and determinants for disparities. She will also review research areas including delivery science and its application to care delivery for patients with oncologic diseases.

At the conclusion of this class, you will be able to:

  • Apply principles of Cancer Epidemiology
  • Examine Screening Policies and Implications for Cancer
  • Explain principles of ZNA as etiologies for disparities in cancer development and outcomes
  • Analyze barriers that lead to disparities across the cancer continuum
  • Apply strategies to overcome barriers in current cancer care delivery

Attendance is open to all research staff.
