The University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center is committed to improving the health and well-being of people who have – or are at risk of getting – cancer. With members from 53 departments across 9 top-ranked University of Michigan schools, we are harnessing the power of one of the largest, most robust and highly esteemed research universities in the world to create new knowledge about cancer. Our nearly 400 members are leaders in advancing knowledge of the origins and behaviors of cancer, and translating that knowledge to prevent cancer, improve outcomes for those diagnosed, and improve quality of life for cancer patients and survivors.
Our 17 multidisciplinary cancer clinics offer one-stop access to teams of specialists including pathologists, radiologists, surgeons, medical oncologists and radiation oncologists, who collaborate to develop personalized treatment plans for each patient as part of the ideal patient care experience. We take the same approach when supporting patients during treatment. Cancer specialists in psychology, genetics, social work, art therapy, nutrition, pain management, rehabilitation, finance and other areas are an integral part of patients’ care team.
As a National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center, our program includes clinical, laboratory and population research; patient education and community outreach; and training for health professionals. In addition, the Rogel Cancer Center is a founding member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, which creates national guidelines for consistent, high-quality and cost-effective cancer care.
