Expert Consult Database
Find an Expert
Find an Expert partners clinicians in low and middle income countries with experts from well-resourced settings. SIOP-NA surveyed its members to determine who would be willing to donate their expertise and insight. We have created a list of experts willing to be contacted. This is a tremendous benefit to colleagues in low to middle income countries (LMICs) especially those without a twinning partner. For instance, if a center in a low to middle income country had some questions about brain tumors, they could check cancerpointe.com to see if there is a neuro-oncologist willing to be contacted.
Please note that all experts are working on a volunteer basis, so time and funding for desired travel vary and may be limited. Experts have also volunteered information on their own expertise regarding disease management and experience in various countries. We greatly appreciate the time and effort of these volunteer experts and trust the information they provided to be accurate, but we are unable to endorse any particular individual’s knowledge, experience or advice.
