Consultations and Second Opinions

Consultation policy

Each year, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital faculty provide consultations, advice, or second opinions on more than 3,000 cases.

We offer both informal consultations with individual St. Jude clinicians and formal consultations with our multidisciplinary groups. During both types of consultations, we will discuss a patient's case and offer recommendations.

St. Jude does not usually bring patients to Memphis for consultation unless they are likely to be eligible for St. Jude clinical trials.
