American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Cancer

The American College of Surgeons Cancer Programs benefit an array of health care professionals, patients, and facilities through standard-setting, accreditation, and educational activities. Representing leaders in cancer care and aiming to improve cancer patient care, our nationally recognized programs—the Commission on Cancer, the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers, the National Cancer Database, the American Joint Committee on Cancer—all work toward helping your program provide high-quality cancer care.

We strive to develop the best educational resources, offer useful training opportunities, advocate for you and your patients, and stay up to date on the latest cancer care trends and treatments. Learn more about what we have to offer your cancer program and the patients you serve.
