The Breast Unit of University Medical Center Groningen has a central position in the Northern Netherlands and offers primary, secondary and tertiary care. New patients with breast problems are firstly seen by nurse practitioners for history and first physical exam. Imaging and needle biopsy (if necessary) are performed on the same day and results discussed by the team and communicated to the patient with a first treatment proposal. The team discusses all patients every week.
UMCG focuses on healthy aging in all priority areas: research, clinical care and education. The Institute of Healthy Aging focuses on the healthy aging-related research. This institute forms the shell in which healthy-aging activities are inserted, i.e. the cohort study LifeLines, the UMCG Center for Geriatric Medicine (UCO) and the future European Research Institute on Biology of Ageing (ERIBA).
