Who Are We?

Founded in 1993, the North Carolina Oncology Association (NCOA) is the largest oncology professional organization in the state. NCOA comprises a powerful community of oncologists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacists, and other multidisciplinary care providers involved in the treatment of patients with cancer. 

NCOA 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 North Carolina.

To carry out our mission, we strive to:

  • Identify and improve oncology practice issues that adversely affect patient access to cancer care;
  • Act as a patient advocate to assure that patients have access to the best available care;
  • Support and encourage clinical research against cancer;
  • Facilitate the development and use of new cancer management techniques in the community;
  • Serve as a leader in the oncology field, representing our members and the local community at state and national events;
  • Provide access to scientific, socioeconomic, clinical, and other relevant data; and
  • Promote collegial relationships among oncology professionals in North Carolina.

Our goals are to:

  • Advocate on state and federal legislative issues impacting patient access to care;
  • Provide an education forum for our members on the current technologies and medical best practices in cancer care delivery; and
  • Communicate changes and updates in oncology practice to our members and the broader community.
