I learned so much regarding Breast Oncology and the time and effort it takes from both patients as well as research staff to make clinical trials run successfully. I have a great appreciation for patients that consent to these studies to help provide information regarding future therapies in cancer.
Administrative work culture is negative towards employees. Individual expertise and effective patient care takes a back seat to bureaucratic goals.
