Who are we?

The Hawaii Society of Clinical Oncology (HSCO) is a powerful community of oncologists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other allied health professionals who provide a voice for multidisciplinary cancer care teams and the patients they serve.

Founded in 1996, HSCO is the largest oncology professional organization in the state. Members rely on us to provide innovative resources to help them stay ahead of the shifting healthcare landscape and challenges that directly impact the high-quality care their patients deserve—both locally and on a national level.

As a Chapter Member of the Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC) and a State Affiliate of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), our members receive valuable educational content and tools designed to respond to national challenges and trends.

Along with 18 other ACCC State Chapter Members that comprise the Oncology State Societies at ACCC, we collaborate with internal and external organizations to support the important work of healthcare professionals and improve the patient experience in the United States.

To carry out our mission, we strive to:

  • Advance quality oncology care and access across Hawaii;
  • Provide a forum for all physicians interested in oncology to share their common concerns; and
  • Act as a vehicle for discussion of oncology practice, continuing education and access to quality oncology care issues.

In order to carry out these interests, our objectives are to:

  • Identify issues of concern to the membership;
  • Promote grassroots advocacy by developing relationships with other oncology interested groups;
  • Provide a forum for discussion on clinical trials legislation and outcomes research;
  • Monitor and respond to appropriate legislative and regulatory concerns of the membership
  • Provide continuing education dinners for membership;
  • Provide value to the membership; and
  • Enhance communication with the membership.
