Division of Medical Oncology

The Medical Oncology Program is a two-year Royal College accredited subspecialty program at the BC Cancer Agency and is affiliated with the University of British Columbia.

Medical Oncology is an exciting career choice. In the past decade this subspecialty has rapidly expanded in scope, reflecting major advancements in clinical and basic science research. This translates into an increasing demand for medical oncologists across Canada and opens the door for diverse professional opportunites in the academic realms of clinical and translational research, medical education, administration and public health policy.

In addition to training residents as clinicians, our program provides them with a solid grounding in the principles of the basic and clinical science of oncology and the ability to tailor the program to their career aspirations.
