Center for Advanced Medicine (CAM)
The Center for Advanced Medicine is the outpatient clinic location for many of the adult specialties represented at Washington University School of Medicine. Here patients receive multidisciplinary consultation, diagnostics, medical treatment, same-day surgery and other support services — all in one setting. This building houses the Alvin J. Siteman Cancer Center, an international leader in cancer treatment, research, prevention, education and community outreach. It is the only cancer center in Missouri and within a 240-mile radius of St. Louis to hold the Comprehensive Cancer Center designation from the National Cancer Institute and membership in the National Comprehensive Cancer Network. Siteman offers the expertise of more than 350 Washington University research scientists and physicians who provide care for more than 7,000 newly diagnosed cancer patients and more than 32,000 follow-up patients each year. These scientists and physicians currently hold nearly $150 million in cancer research and related training grants.
