Becoming a City of Hope Medical Group physician means joining a medical community that is a world leader in treating, researching and preventing life-threatening diseases, including cancer, diabetes and HIV/AIDS. We are among only 49 other U.S. medical centers that carry the National Cancer Institute’s highest designation - comprehensive cancer center. And, for 13 years City of Hope has been ranked as one of the nation’s “Best Cancer Hospitals” by U.S. News & World Report.

A Strong Focus on Clinical Research
As part of being an independent research and treatment center for life-threatening diseases, City of Hope is a worldwide leader in conducting clinical trials. Focusing on helping patients now, we conduct more than 500 clinical trials each year, and enroll more than 6,200 patients. At our main campus in Duarte, scientists, physicians and treatment-manufacturing facilities function side by side, enabling us to turn breakthrough discoveries into experimental treatments. As a founding member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, City of Hope also develops research and treatment protocols that advance care throughout the nation.

Shared Resources that Boost Research
A longtime distinction of the City of Hope and Beckman Research Institute is that collaboration includes researchers from a variety of specialties sharing equipment, services and knowledge. In 2015, City of Hope teamed up with the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) to begin systematically sharing resources with other comprehensive cancer centers, and potentially with researchers outside the network too. As one of 27 cancer centers in the United States that are participating in the NCCN’s Shared Resources Database, our researchers have access to complex technologies, instrumentation facilities, human-tissue specimens, animal models and specialized databases.
