Physician Leadership & Participation
US Oncology Research physicians across the country collaborate and share best practices — both virtually and in person. US Oncology Research physicians have many research leadership opportunities, including the ability to become a study principal investigator, a site research leader, or a member of a disease committee.
Working alongside an experienced and focused network of investigators, physicians can also discuss patient treatment options with nearly 1,000 oncology specialists through the eTumor Boards and participate with key thought leaders at the annual US Oncology Research conference.
