Advanced practice providers are playing an increasingly important role in the cancer care team. That’s why the American Society of Clinical Oncology and the Association for Clinical Oncology has a membership category dedicated to providing the benefits they need to develop knowledge and skills, participate in national and global policy conversations, network with peers, and stay on top of the latest scientific advances.
Advanced Practice Provider membership is available to advanced practice providers in oncology, including physician assistants, nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, advanced degree nurses, and pharmacists who devote a majority of their professional activity to the care and treatment of patients with cancer.
Annual Dues: $150, plus a $35 one-time initiation fee
