Physician Governance
Physicians in The US Oncology Network have a say in the vision and focus of The Network. Physicians are represented on clinical and public policy committees where they play a key role in developing initiatives and setting policy for the network.
Physicians in The US Oncology Network regularly collaborate with their colleagues across America to make clinical and treatment policy decisions and to address other issues affecting the patient experience.
Opportunities for collaboration include:
Network Meetings

Clinical Research Committee
Advises on scientific direction and operational initiatives to create and maintain a leading community-focused cancer research program.
iKnowMedTM Product Development Committee

The Oncology Portal
The Oncology Portal is a Web-based community that allows remote Network physicians to collaborate in real time.
