Referral Coordination and Resources for Health Care Professionals

Referring to the UH Breast Health Center

UH Breast Health Center professionals promptly respond to hundreds of referring physicians every year. The Physician Referral Department helps health care specialists coordinate referrals, discuss atypical or problematic cases, order specialized tests, confirm a diagnosis and access the expertise of medical departments and faculty.

We ask for the following patient information to be available at the time of referral to facilitate the request:

  • Full name
  • Current address
  • Current phone number(s)
  • Insurance information

Clinical Research

Learn more about the ongoing clinical research and clinical trials being conducted by the physician scientists at the UH Breast Health Center.

Breast Density Guidelines

Dense breast tissue can hide abnormalities and make the early detection of breast cancer more difficult. Learn more about the breast density guidelines that can assist you in planning screening and treatment protocols for your patients.

Continuing Medical Education Programs

Medical professionals also have access to several of our continuing education programs, including a program on skin- and nipple-sparing mastectomies, and can search our physician database.

Residency and Fellowship Programs

University Hospitals offers a number of residency and fellowship programs that provide clinical experience and research opportunities in a community health care environment, including two breast imaging fellowships within UH Breast Health Center. Program members attend weekly multidisciplinary tumor board conferences and a weekly resident conference on breast imaging. They are also encouraged to conduct clinical research.
