Ketchum, ID, February 5, 2006 – In January 2006 CancerConsultants.com had over 35,000 unique visitors access its web-based professional education programs, and 4000 oncology physicians have now registered to participate in various educational services that include receipt of newsletters, CME, access to conference coverage, and participation in online market research programs. CancerConsultants.com, the comprehensive oncology portal for physicians designed to provide practice and information services to providers of cancer care, was initially launched prior to ASCO 2002. Since its launch CancerConsultants.com has experienced consistent growth in the number of registering physicians each month.

By expanding its online platform to include physicians, CancerConsultants.com became one of the most comprehensive oncology resources on the Internet. Furthermore, the CancerConsultants.com Physician Portal is unique from other physician resources because it is easy to navigate and physician registration is optional. Moreover, CancerConsultants.com was developed and is managed by oncology professionals, including some of the nation’s leading oncologists. By having oncologists working for oncologists, CancerConsultants.com ensures that physicians have access to the most current and pertinent information.
