About SCOPE, an early-phase oncology program in Sacramento region
”No single oncologist or researcher can find the answers on his or her own...The good news is that today, oncologists and cancer researchers realize that they can’t do it alone either.”
∼ Joe Biden, Former Vice-President
We are a community alliance of physicians providing cutting edge cancer treatments to patients in the greater Sacramento area.
Along with a well-established patient advocate, physician representatives from every Sacramento region oncology practice serve on the executive committee for the Sacramento Citywide Oncology Phase I program (SCOPE).
Committee members participate in regular meetings to define the development of the Sacramento Citywide Oncology Phase I program and strategies to overcome barriers to the delivery of care, as well as refine the study portfolio.
We collaborate to improve advanced cancer care and bring novel therapies directly to patients who need them.
Additionally, all Sacramento area oncologists receive weekly updates on the status of available studies and have the potential to enroll their patients to clinical trials.
