What does being an MD Anderson Cancer Network certified physician mean?


Whether you've been previously diagnosed, would like a second opinion or simply want to learn more, we're here for you. This collaboration provides certified physicians with access to evidence-based guidelines and treatment plans developed by MD Anderson experts. These are disease-specific guidelines for cancer treatment, prevention, early detection and follow-up care, bringing new hope to local patients.

FRHS's 13 participating, certified physicians include medical, surgical and radiation oncologists who treat cancer patients at their office locations and Frederick Memorial Hospital.

In addition to the best practices and expert resources, this affiliation brings to our cancer team, Frederick Regional Health System also provides specially trained nurse navigators and supportive programs free to anyone affected by cancer.
