Miami Cancer Institute Names M. Beatriz Currier, MD, Director of Cancer Patient Support Services

M. Beatriz Currier, MD joins the executive leadership of Miami Cancer Institute at Baptist Health South Florida as Director of Cancer Patient Support Services. In this role, Dr. Currier will lead a multi-specialty cancer support services team comprised of physicians who specialize in psychiatry, integrative medicine, cancer rehabilitation and pain management, as well as a comprehensive team of interdisciplinary clinicians who will address the psycho-social and physical well-being of cancer patients.

"We are extremely fortunate to have someone of Dr. Currier's qualifications join us," said Leonard Kalman, MD, Deputy Director and Chief Clinical Officer of Miami Cancer Institute. "A Board-certified psychosomatic psychiatrist, Dr. Currier is one of the few physicians in the country to have already built and led a similar program to the one she will develop at Miami Cancer Institute. Her program will be the hub for developing a variety of services that will be integrated into the fabric of the Cancer Institute. These services include psycho-social oncology services, integrative medicine consultations, exercise and nutrition counseling, pain management, cancer rehabilitation, survivorship and mind-body therapies."

Dr. Currier earned her medical degree from the University of South Florida College of Medicine in Tampa. She completed a general psychiatry residency at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Medical Center and completed a clinical fellowship in psychosomatic medicine at Harvard Medical School/Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.
