Caprice Greenberg MD

Associate Professor, Department of Surgery
University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health
Director, Wisconsin Surgical Outcomes Research Program
A graduate of the University of Chicago, (BA, MD) and Harvard School of Public Health (MPH), Dr. Greenberg's research program emphasizes performance and safety in surgical care, comparative effectiveness research and qualitative research, particularly in relation to patient and provider interactions. Recent studies from her group have assessed disparities in cancer care, mechanisms to improve operating room processes and reduce surgical error, and suggested changes in treatment strategies to improve cancer outcomes. Current studies are investigating variations in breast cancer treatment across community hospitals in the US, strategies to improve efficiency and learning in the operating room, and analyzing resiliency and contingency planning in the operating room.
