    James Hu, MD, FACP, is the medical director of the Sarcoma Program of USC, and is considered one of the nation’s experts in the disease. Dr. Hu has more than 30 years of clinical experience in medical oncology and brings this acumen to the bedside. Understanding the rarity of sarcoma cancers, Dr. Hu has the breadth of clinical experience as well as the academic discipline to provide each patient with an individualized treatment program. He has collaborated with other national experts to bring clinical trials to USC. He is a member of the Connective Tissue Oncology Society, and has linked the Sarcoma Program of USC with the international collaborative group: Sarcoma Alliance for Research through Collaboration (SARC), to further direct research into sarcoma.

    Dr Hu has authored several review articles on sarcoma, in both national and international peer reviewed journals. As a former military commander of a combat support hospital, Dr. Hu has years of experience in the issues surrounding young adult disease and along with Dr. Freyer, is the co-director of the Adolescent and Young Adult program of USC and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. This program offers specialized services tailored to adolescent and young adult patients who comprise a significant portion of patients diagnosed with sarcomas. Dr Hu and his medical oncology team pride themselves on patient accessibility and are committed to providing comprehensive oncology care to the patient with sarcoma.

    Dr. Hu is a local Angeleno, having grown up in the neighborhood surrounding Los Angeles General Medical Center (formerly LAC+USC Medical Center). Dr Hu is proud to be a part of USC and grateful for an opportunity to give back to his community.
