Cancer Care

Nationally recognized as a leader in cancer care, Scripps Cancer Center offers people in Southern California access to advanced diagnostics, treatments and support services through a collaborative, multidisciplinary team of medical specialists and other experts.

Clinical Research 

Scripps Health is committed to providing the best possible patient care, and research is a critical part of that mission. In addition to bringing the latest treatments to our patients, the knowledge gained from these research studies advances the quality of care for people around the world.

Scripps Health physicians study new medications and devices, track patient outcomes for years or even decades and gather evidence for sophisticated education and treatment programs. This information is then disseminated into the Scripps system through graduate and continuing medical education and to the scientific community through peer-reviewed publications.

Graduate Medical Education

As a national leader in graduate medical education (GME), Scripps has been training physicians longer than any other institution in San Diego. With California poised to face the greatest physician shortage in the nation by 2030, Scripps GME programs are critical in ensuring a robust pipeline of newly trained physicians to care for future generations. Philanthropy is vital to sustaining and growing these programs, as well as providing much needed technology, equipment and resources.

Through five hospital campuses, a network of outpatient clinics and partnerships with community health agencies, Scripps physicians in training have opportunities to care for diverse patient populations. Our program includes residencies in internal medicine, family medicine, pharmacy, podiatry, psychiatry and more, as well as 10 accredited fellowship programs in subspecialty training.
