Who Are We?

Founded in 2002, the Missouri Oncology Society (MOS) is the largest oncology professional organization in the state. MOS comprises a powerful community of oncologists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacists, and other multidisciplinary care providers involved in the treatment of patients with cancer.

MOS is one of 23 State Chapter Members managed by the Association of Cancer Care Centers (ACCC) and is a State Affiliate of the American Society of Clinical Oncology. Our members receive valuable educational content and innovative resources designed to keep them ahead of the local and national challenges and trends directly impacting the high-quality care their patients deserve.

We collaborate with internal and external organizations to support our mission of improving patient outcomes and the treatment of cancer in the State of Missouri.

To carry out our mission, we strive to:

  • Improve care delivery services in Missouri;
  • Study the socioeconomic aspects and consider these findings in facilitating management of these diseases;
  • Sponsor educational programs for clinicians;
  • Promote interchange between clinicians;
  • Safeguard the rights of patients;
  • Serve as an advocate and liaison to governmental and insurance interests on behalf of patients;
  • Disseminate information regarding legislative and regulatory developments;
  • Promote scientific inquiry and exchange of clinical information;
  • Establish and maintain high medical and ethical standards; and
  • Promote fellowship among its members.

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

  • Affect legislation and public policy relative to patient access to cancer care;
  • Act as a resource on the "accepted medical practices" associated with cancer care;
  • Provide a forum for education of our members on current technologies and their role as accepted medical practices; and
  • Provide communications to our members and others on issues affecting patient access to cancer care and the practice of oncology.
