Which country is the best for studying Oncology?
I am in my second year of medicine and I would like to specialize in Oncology and work in a hospital abroad. Which country offers the best for this specialization? I am only interested in an English speaking country.
For your interest of study –I strongly recommend Canada.
Prerequisites for Graduate Studies in Oncology:
Most schools in Canada offer an MD degree in Oncology (specializing in radiation oncology, surgical oncology, and/or medical oncology). The University of Alberta also offers a graduate research program (MSc and PhD) in experimental oncology.
Admission to the University of Alberta's graduate program is restricted to students with at least a B+ average in a previous undergraduate degree in a relevant field. A GRE (graduate record examination) score of at least 75 per cent is required from International students. MUN also offers MSc and PhD programs in cancer research. You need an undergraduate degree in a related field with at least a B average for admission to the MSc program. Completion of an MSc degree is necessary for admission to the PhD program.
Students currently taking an undergraduate degree in any discipline are usually eligible for admission to the MD program; in some cases full completion of the previous degree is mandatory. Some schools require an average of at least B in the previous degree (and of course, the higher the average, the better).
Completion of relevant courses such as Biology or Chemistry is considered an asset, rounded out with several humanities and social sciences courses.
Additionally, the MCAT (medical college admission test) must be written. A score of at least 27 is considered an asset for admission.
Employment Resources and Professions Available to Oncology Graduates:
Oncologists have a wide variety of employment choices. They can work with patients, performing surgery or administering chemotherapy at large hospitals. They can also work in a radiology department as a diagnostic technician, or in a nursing capacity (eg. palliative care or nursing homes).
Oncologists can also work in research centers where they have less contact with patients, working on creating new chemical therapies to combat cancer.
Oncologists can also work in an administrative capacity as the heads of research centers or the oncology departments of hospitals. They can also teach oncology at the university level, usually in conjunction with practicing clinically.
