HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS Physician Resources
Dedicated Physician Resources
Baptist MD Anderson Cancer Center partners with the health care community to provide continuing education and other resources to physicians, nurses and other health care professionals.
As a continuing medical education (CME) provider and a proud member of MD Anderson’s partner network, we are able to offer a wide range of clinical resources, educational opportunities and tools to help keep our care teams at their best.
Oncology New Patient Access Center
Our patient access specialists are dedicated to helping new patients plan and schedule their first appointment. We know how important it is for clinical teams to have everything they need in a timely manner in order to develop a care plan.
Our goal is to make appointment scheduling as easy as possible. We help patients verify their insurance coverage and work to get relevant medical records transferred before patients arrive at our facility. After submitting a referral form, our team will reach out to your patient by phone, where we walk through exactly what to expect. We are always here to help patients coming in to Baptist MD Anderson, from the moment they are referred to us.
LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES Continuing Medical Education
As a CME provider, Baptist MD Anderson is dedicated to providing ongoing training needed to maintain skills and stay up-to-date on all the latest advancements in cancer care.

Commission on Cancer (CoC) Cancer Committee Meeting
The care of patients with cancer requires a multidisciplinary approach and encompasses physician and non-physician professionals. The cancer program and its medical staff provide the structure, process, and personnel to obtain and maintain the Commission on Cancer’s standards. The committee responsible for program leadership is multidisciplinary and represents the full scope of cancer care and services.
Regular cancer committee meetings held each quarter assist with ensuring that administrative responsibilities related to cancer program functions are carried out and standard compliance is met.
With all of the complexities of cancer, it takes a dedicated, multidisciplinary team of experts to create an effective treatment plan.
