Who are we?

The Missouri Oncology Society (MOS) 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 2002, MOS 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 across the country.

To carry out our mission, we strive to:

  • Improve the delivery of services in Missouri;
  • Study the socio-economic 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.
