Medical Oncology is a subspecialty of internal medicine that concerns itself with the diagnosis, staging, and treatment of malignant diseases. The emphasis is on the use of systemic therapies that include chemotherapy and biologics. Fundamental research includes cancer genetics, cancer cytogenetics, molecular oncology, and cancer pharmacology. The purpose of this program is to provide training to board-certified or board-eligible internists who desire to become the physician-scientists of the future and who want to maintain a full-time academic focus.
