UCLA Radiation Oncology Radiosurgery and SBRT program operates in a highly organized multidisciplinary teamwork environment. We have assembled a multidisciplinary clinical and research team that has a track record of developing, translating, and utilizing safe and effective methods of treatments. It is commonly recognized that teamwork improves patient care and safety. In fact, one can argue that patient safety depends on it. Well organized sets of rules, regulations and policies may ensure quality patient care for vast majority of our patient; however, it is the teamwork that closes the gap and ensures quality patient care for all our patients.
