HRCC is part of a national exclusive group of centers where cancer patients are approved to enroll on Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG) protocols. Our collaboration through the RTOG brings us in communication with nationally recognized experts at major academic cancer centers. This  helps Dr. Murshed to remain abreast of the most upto-date treatments for his patients. Dr. Murshed is an active participant in national RTOG clincial trials which enables his patients to receive the most upto-date and innovative treatment possible in a community setting in Panama City, FL.
