Multidisciplinary Clinics and Tumor Boards 

The centerpiece of the Stanford Cancer Center is the tumor boards and multidisciplinary clinics where specialists from Surgery, Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Radiology, and Pathology evaluate and discuss patients for whom a multispecialty approach is being considered. The multidisciplinary group will collectively design the best course of action for each patient.

Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care patient, you have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.

Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.

Before beginning treatment, ask your doctor about any clinical trials you should consider. Learn more about clinical trials for cancer patients.

Clinical trial eligibility flowcharts

Eligibility flowcharts map clinical trials to specific types of cancers to determine if a participant is eligible for the particular clinical trial. View all cancer eligibility flowcharts at the Stanford Cancer Institute.
