What is medical oncology? Medical oncology is a sub-specialty of internal medicine devoted to the investigation, diagnosis and management of people with cancer including preventative and palliative medicine.
What is a medical oncologist? A medical oncologist is a physician specialising in diagnosing and treating cancer using chemotherapy and biological therapy. A medical oncologist is usually the main health care provider for a person who has cancer and gives supportive care to the patient through collaboration of multidisciplinary teams and co-ordination of other specialists. Medical oncologists are not only involved in clinical care, but also contribute to cancer research (including biology, therapeutics, epidemiology and clinical outcomes research), health education, ethics and clinical teaching.
