UC Davis Cancer Care Network Benefits
Virtual Tumor Boards
Using telemedicine, our doctors collaborate with teams of specialists at UC Davis through real-time videoconferencing to share medical information and review treatment plans. This means that each patient has a group of oncologists working together to develop an individual treatment plan custom to their unique goals and needs. These video conferences are called Virtual Tumor Boards.
UC Davis offers more than 150 different clinical trials of the next generation of cancer treatments. Patients in Merced now have easier access to UC Davis clinical trials through this collaboration. Clinical trials often provide the best hope for people with advanced or complex cancers.
