The committees at Siteman Cancer Center, Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine are key to our success as well as the success of our patients. Internal and external committees oversee fiscal and legal matters as well as help us hone our expertise in the stages of the cancer journey. They do this by assessing and suggesting ways to improve in patient safety and care, cancer research, drug administration, clinical trials, support programs and much more.
