Welcome to the Department of Oncology

Message from the Chair, Jonathan Sussman

Oncology is a dynamic department of over 100 full and part time members across the divisions of Radiation Oncology, Medical Oncology and Hematology. Members of the department both lead as well as participate in practice changing research in health services, clinical trials and the translational domains. Our educational programs attract learners from across the university, nationally and internationally at the undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate levels. Cancer care, by its nature, is an interdisciplinary specialty, which is reflected by our membership in excellence in clinical care, education and research. I encourage you to visit our website to learn more about the Department of Oncology and its members.
