As of August 2018, more than 100 teams from oncology practices around the United States and the world have participated in ASCO’s Quality Training Program (QTP).
The QTP offers education and training for physician-led oncology teams. The program prepares teams of oncology providers to design, implement, and lead successful quality improvement activities in their practice settings. The traditional 6-month course includes access to renowned faculty and coaches through 5 focused days of in-person learning over 3 sessions during which practice teams attend seminars, review case examples, and participate in small-group exercises.

The workshop is aimed at empowering oncology providers with skills in quality improvement to reduce clinical variation and improve patient outcomes. After the workshop, participants will be able to:
