Another major component of Surgical Oncology is the education of medical and graduate students, house officers, and fellowstraining tomorrow's leaders in the surgical management of cancer.
Our institution offers state-of-the-art programs in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of nearly all cancers in newly renovated in-patient and out-patient facilities.
I invite you to look through our web site, which gives some information on the active clinical and research programs available to our patients and students.
