Cancer Specialists


Patients who come to UCLA benefit from care provided by experts from different specialties who work together to help them contend with the immediate and long-term challenges of cancer. Team-oriented, state-of-the-art care for cancer patients who do not require hospitalization is provided in outpatient cancer (oncology) care centers in Alhambra, IrvinePasadenaPorter Ranch, Santa ClaritaSanta MonicaSimi ValleyTorrance, Westlake Village and Westwood. Patients who require hospitalization can receive care at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, UCLA Medical Center, Santa Monica, or Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA.

Visit our Cancer Health Center for in-depth information on the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and care of cancer patients. 

Support, education and wellness for cancer patients and their families are integral to the comprehensive services offered at UCLA. We also offer a number of programs for those at high risk of cancer due to family history or inherited genetic mutations associated with cancer.

Cancer specialists at UCLA have an international reputation for developing new cancer therapies, providing the best in experimental and traditional treatments and expertly guiding and training the next generation of medical researchers. Successful targeted therapies such as Herceptin, Gleevec and Sprycel were developed based on basic science done in UCLA's Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center laboratories and, later, in clinical research studies with UCLA patients. UCLA's Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center consistently ranks among the top cancer centers nationwide by U.S.News & World Report.
