Florian R. Schroeck is a board-certified urologist sub-specializing in urologic cancer care. His research focuses on evaluating and improving the quality of care for patients with urologic cancers. Schroeck’s interest in quality of cancer care originated from the finding that patients with prostate cancer who underwent robotic versus the more traditional open surgery experienced more frequent regret of their treatment choice. Schroeck’s research aims to get the right care to every cancer patient. Recently, he has combined administrative and pathology data to understand current patterns of bladder cancer surveillance care within the Department of Veterans Affairs. He has also used qualitative research methods to understand how patients perceive being “under cancer surveillance”. Currently, he is leading a six site study using implementation science methods to improve bladder cancer care within the Department of Veterans Affairs. The goal is to make it easier for physicians, nurses, and other health workers to get the right care to every patient. Schroeck is associate professor of surgery and of The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy & Clinical Practice. He has published more than 50 manuscripts and received several national research awards. He is section chief of urology at the White River Junction VA Medical Center and a core faculty member of the VA Outcomes Group.
Schroeck earned an MD from the Technische Universität München, Germany, and an MS in Healthcare Research from the University of Michigan. He completed urology residency at Duke University and a fellowship in urologic oncology and health services research at the University of Michigan.
