ONCOLOGY

Oncology

Oncology operates under two separate strands, Medical Oncology and Clinical Oncology, both of which focus on non-surgical management of malignant diseases. The main difference between these strands is that Clinical Oncology utilises Radiotherapy as a method of treatment whilst Medical Oncologists use non-radiological treatments.

What is required to be an Oncologist in the NHS?

The qualifications needed for specialty training in each strand differ. Clinical Oncology training is supervised through the Royal College of Radiologists (FRCR) and Medical Oncology through the Royal College of Physicians (MRCP).
