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

Commission on Cancer

The Commission on Cancer (CoC), a program of the American College of Surgeons (ACoS), recognizes cancer care programs for their commitment to providing comprehensive, high-quality, and multidisciplinary patient centered care. The CoC is dedicated to improving survival and quality of life for cancer patients through standard-setting, prevention, research, education, and the monitoring of comprehensive quality care. Through the CoC, your cancer program has access to reporting tools to aid in benchmarking and improving outcomes at your facility as well as educational and training opportunities, development resources, and advocacy.
