About Us

The Massachusetts Society of Clinical Oncologists is a statewide organization representing oncologists and physicians who provide care for cancer patients. Founded in 1985, the Society is dedicated to improving cancer care and treatment and is recognized by the Massachusetts Medical Society and the American Society of Clinical Oncology as the voice for cancer physicians and their patients in the state.

As an advocacy organization, the Society provides a wide array of programs and services to assist physicians with their practices.  Whether physicians want to further their professional education or need technical assistance with third-party reimbursement, MSCO is a valuable resource.  Cancer physicians rely on MSCO not only for up to date information about cancer care and health care trends, but also because they know they can count on a respected voice to represent their interests.
