The Community Clinical Oncology Program (CCOP) is a network for conducting cancer prevention and treatment clinical trials by community physicians. This network connects academic centers (Research Bases who design and conduct the trials) with community physicians (CCOP and Minority-Based CCOP, who accrue patients to those trials).
A Minority-Based CCOP (MB-CCOP) must meet the same criteria as the CCOP, but 40% of new patients/participants must come from minority populations. CCOP networks are established by the National Cancer Institute Division of Cancer Prevention.

Georgia has both a CCOP and a Minority-based CCOP.
