SJMHS Oncologists Recognized for Excellence in Clinical Trial Participation

Ten physicians from Saint Joseph Mercy Health System were recognized for excellence in clinical trial participation in 2017 by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP).

This year the NCORP program awarded 358, of the 3500, NCORP physician investigators with awards recognizing excellence in clinical trial participation.  Clinical trials are essential for moving new methods of preventing, diagnosing , and treating cancer from the laboratory to physicians’ offices and other clinical settings and, ultimately, to improve care and quality of life for people with cancer.
