PATIENTS/CAREGIVERS: See our list of approved Clinical Centers of Excellence here.

Overwhelmingly, patients want to know where they can be seen by experts in their area. This program connects patients with institutions providing top-notch care.
The Pheo Para Center of Excellence program provides an environment where patients receive the best possible pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma care through a geographically diverse network of clinical centers.

In addition to clinical and wellness services, the centers provide professional and lay education in the areas they serve, work with the Pheo Para Alliance in its efforts to continually improve the lives of those affected by the illness, and support clinical research efforts.

The program offers two designations. The Clinical Center of Excellence (CCE) designation recognizes centers that provide high-quality, multi-disciplinary care and facilitate pheo para research. The Clinical and Research Center of Excellence (CRCE) designation recognizes centers that provide high-quality, multi-disciplinary care, same as the CCE designation, but also have a comprehensive pheo para research program.

Program Objectives
  1. Increase access to multi-disciplinary, coordinated clinical care for diagnosis and treatment of pheochromcytoma and paraganglioma
  2. Educate professionals and newly diagnosed patients and their families
  3. Facilitate pheochromcytoma and paraganglioma research
