Sobre o curso

Welcome to an Introduction to Breast Cancer! In this course, we’ll learn a bit about the leading cause of cancer in women worldwide – from the basic biology of the disease, to risk factors and prevention, to treatment modalities to survivorship. We’ll talk to leading experts, explore some of the milestone studies that have pushed this field forward, and have interactive discussions on discussion boards and social media. You’ll even have an opportunity to let us know what topics you want to cover on tweetchats, so we can try to make the content fit your interests. There is something in this course for everyone – if you’re a breast cancer survivor or the friend/family member of someone with this disease, this course will help you to better understand this disease, and give you ideas for questions you may want to ask your doctor. Maybe you’re a healthcare provider or studying to be the same, this course is a great refresher on where the state of the science is. If you’re a healthcare administrator wondering about how the interdisciplinary components of breast cancer care fit together, or an entrepreneur thinking about unmet needs in this space, or someone in public health interested in prevention, this course is also for you! Are you ready to learn a lot, and have some fun while we’re at it? If so, I hope you’ll join us! Let’s get started!!!...

I learned so much with this course, and it will definitely help me to give people advice about breast cancer.

I really enjoyed the course. I really like that it is entirely made by videos (except for supplementary material) since I usually write and read a lot, so that watching the videos was more comfortable than reading material. I am very interested in breast cancer since my phD project is on therapeutic drug monitoring in patients with this disease and I wanted to have a wider picture of it. I got a lot of new information thanks to this course and I highly recommend it.

The course is very informative for student like me who can apply the knowledge I gained through this course for my future aspect. I can share important informations to others - my friends, family and any breast cancer patient I come across in future to create awareness and spread the idea about what breast cancer is and what are the various treatment methods. Thank you Coursera team and special thanks to Dr. Anees Chagpar for sharing her knowledge with us.

Its a well designed, structured course and taught really well. Considering I have already knew things about the staging and classification and the general overviews of breast cancer, I have got a lot of new information regarding the clinical aspects such as surgery techniques and what parameters are important for getting which kind of surgical procedures. Thanks Yale for the Course, and Coursera for providing the platform.

I really enjoyed this course and never really stopped watching all the videos until I completed the entire course. I am very that that I came across this course, the instructor makes it more amazing as she is very experienced in this field. She teaches everything in very easy language and though being from a non-medical field I understood every bit of this course. I will highly recommend this course to everyone!

This course was just what I was looking for. I am entering into the field of pathology as a pathologists' assistant and this laid it all out in the simplest of terms. Now I can approach each breast case from the gross room with a lot more confidence! Now I feel like I can delve deeper into breast pathology on my own and have a solid foundation to work off. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

I REALLY appreciated this course! I was diagnosed with breast cancer in April and have been working to learn as much as I can in the interim. I actually learned that I need radiation from this course (none of my providers had mentioned it), so I am really grateful to have participated in this. Really good information, engaging professor, and well organized content.

Dr. Chagpar's introduction to breast cancer is engaging and suitable for all audiences. I have a broader understanding of all aspects of breast cancer - from diagnosis to survivorship. I especially enjoyed the format. Dr. Chagpar appeared at a desk alongside a slide deck, which made it feel as though I was having a conversation with her in-person.

O curso é bastante completo, abordando desde aspectos introdutórios do câncer de mama (o que é, classificações, modalidades de tratamento, etc) até questões atuais, como ensaios clínicos e a correlação com o covid-19. Recomendou muito a todos que trabalham na área ou gostariam de se aprofundar por questões de ensino.

I am only a high school graduate so i thought this would be difficult for me t understand and comprehend fully. But Dr Chagpar made it so detailed and informative and somehow interactive as well. I understood almost all the lectures fully. Im super grateful i decided to enroll in this course!!

Mrs. Anees Chagpar has been an amazing course instructor. She managed to keep my interest captivated through lists of numerous NSABP codes and rather unfriendly data, on an issue that is much debated and triggers reasonable concern and controversy and is often viewed as a terminal condition.

I absolutely loved this course. It was really informative and made easy to understand. I personally took this course because I had a fear of the subject and thought it to be really difficult. But now I am motivated to learn more about it and I am looking forward to helping my patients.
