International Partners

Fox Chase Cancer Center, part of the Temple University Health System, has a long tradition of engaging in international initiatives. In 2014, the Center partnered with the Temple University Health System Office of International Health (TUHS OIH). In 2017, the department became Fox Chase International.

The office of international health also works to raise the skills and expertise in cancer prevention, detection and cancer treatments in other countries, and to establish advanced cancer treatment centers abroad in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.
