NCI Accreditation

NCI Accreditation 101

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) Cancer Centers Program, which is responsible accrediting high performance cancer centers, is a leading voice in the nation’s cancer research effort. There are currently sixty-nine NCI-Designated Cancer Centers that form the nexus of the NCI’s initiatives for studying and combatting cancer.  While there are many cancer centers in existence, becoming NCI-accredited is one of the most rigorous and prestigious designations in the country.
