Welcome to the Department of Oncology
Welcome to our website, and thank you for your interest.
Our Department has Divisions representing all major cancer disciplines. Our training programs plus research streams are healthy.
Training is a significant focus with programs in all post graduate medical education disciplines, as well as non-medical education areas. We invite you to look into these. Research is well developed in all pillars, most of this coming under our research institute Southern Alberta Cancer Research Institute. Clinical and population health research continues mainly within the Tom Baker Cancer Centre.
We have a young, dynamic faculty. We encourage mentorship, and have progressive leadership development initiatives. Together with the Faculty of Medicine and the Alberta Health Services we are striving to reduce cancers, see fewer cancer deaths and alleviate suffering from cancer. Join us so we can make a difference to cancer patients.
