On behalf of the faculty and staff, we welcome you to the Division of Medical Oncology website where you will find information relating to our world-class medical-care, superior educational opportunities, and innovative clinical and lab based research.  Our vision is to develop future oncology leaders through innovative cancer research, education, and interdisciplinary compassionate care.  In 2019 it is estimated that there will be 26,800 new cancer cases and 8,120 cancer related deaths, which is why we aim to improve cancer outcomes through research discovery while delivering the highest quality of compassionate care.
