Research Interests

Dr. Greenberg’s research program is dedicated to improving the quality and safety of surgical care. She has two goals that guide her work: 1) to improve operative performance and patient safety; and 2) to decrease practice variation and engage patients and other stakeholders in promoting high quality surgical care for patients with cancer.

Her team is developing approaches for video capture and analysis to facilitate the improvement quality, safety, and effectiveness in surgical care, primarily through the development and implementation of evidence-based initiatives. For example, several projects aim to develop an approach to Surgical Coaching for the continued professional development of surgeons in practice. She also studies practice patterns, quality of care and comparative effectiveness in surgical oncology, particularly related to breast cancer.
