Doc-to-Doc Phone Consultation
MEDCON Education & Referral Service
MEDCON is a toll-free education and referral service of the University of Washington School of Medicine and its primary teaching hospitals.
As a major resource for medical education, research, and patient care, UW School of Medicine places particular importance on its communication with the practicing physicians in the Pacific Northwest region. These interchanges enable the faculty to appreciate the challenges referring physicians face in their practices so that we may provide better assistance and support. All physicians who practice at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance are on the Faculty of UW and are available for a consult via MEDCON.
Special operators are available throughout the day to take providers' calls and to link them with an appropriate faculty physician with expertise in any particular area. After hours and on weekends, University of Washington Medical Center operators will take your call.
Phone: (800) 326-5300
Hours: The line is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. A MEDCON operator will connect you with the appropriate expert.
If you are considering referring a patient for a bone marrow or stem cell transplant, and want to discuss treatment options with a physician, please call our intake office and ask to speak to the clinical coordinator. The clinical coordinator is a physician transplant specialist from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
