A team of University of Arizona physicians is collaborating with a medical team in Colombia to facilitate the establishment of an effective multidisciplinary cutaneous oncology program and to initiate collaborative projects in the field of melanoma.

Representatives of the Colombian National Cancer Institute invited University of Arizona Cancer Center physician-scientists to a three-day conference in Bogota in April attended by about 100 clinicians and researchers to discuss ways to establish a multidisciplinary approach to improve the outcomes of patients treated for melanoma at their institution.
