Since 1933, cancer programs at UCSF have been continuously accredited by the Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons (ACoS). The CoC is a consortium of professional organizations dedicated to reducing the morbidity and mortality of cancer through education, standard-setting, and monitoring of quality, multidisciplinary cancer patient care. CoC-approved programs diagnose and treat 80 percent of the individuals who are diagnosed with cancer each year.
Cancer programs like those at UCSF voluntarily participate in the CoC Approvals Program, complying with 36 standards of quality cancer patient care. The result is that UCSF is among a select group of institutions that have achieved the highest level of accreditation. Our patients can be assured of: a multi-specialty, comprehensive team approach to coordinate the best treatment options; treatment with state-of-the-art services and equipment; access to the latest clinical trials; and access to cancer-related information, education, and support services.
