abstract

  • An Ad Hoc Committee was created from the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) membership. Goals of training were discussed and curriculum guidelines were created. To gain special expertise in medical oncology, the curriculum emphasizes formal instruction in the following: (1) the treatment of individual malignancies, with an emphasis on a coordinated multidisciplinary approach; (2) a clinical experience that emphasizes patient management in both the inpatient and outpatient settings; (3) the ability to perform specified procedures; and (4) the key tools in basic science that apply to patient management. This document should be considered the educational frame work around which a curriculum is developed.
