Psychosocial Oncology hours
Monday - Friday: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Cancer and its treatment can be an understandably stressful experience for many people. The Psychosocial Oncology Service at Rush University Medical Center provides treatment and support to patients, caregivers and families as they manage the stress of cancer. Licensed clinical psychologists, psychology fellows and residents provide consultation and treatment for individuals, families and groups. Evaluation and treatment is provided in outpatient and inpatient settings to enhance the continuity of care.
The psychosocial oncology team will work with you to tailor a treatment plan to help you manage stress and physical symptoms, solve problems and maximize your quality of life. Members of the team not only refer to research for treatment planning, but regularly add to the research literature through ongoing studies.
