Update: Special Study Facility Eligibility

It was previously stated that sites with a reference date of 1/1/2008 would be exempt from the 2017 Prostate Special Study. After reviewing the number of eligible patients across all CoC-accredited sites, we have decided to extend the diagnosis year to 2008 for a select number of institutions with a reference date of 1/1/2008. This change will affect a small number of sites that have patients meeting eligibility criteria; these sites will be contacted directly by study staff about participation.

Any questions should be directed to the specialstudy@facs.org email address. We appreciate all your efforts for the Special Study.
