Clinical oncology

The Faculty of Clinical Oncology is working to promote the specialty on a wide platform of activities, setting standards for entry to, and practice in, clinical oncology, and leading and supporting clinical oncologists during their careers.

The RCR has set out a blueprint for the future of clinical oncology over the next decade: Clinical Oncology – the future shape of the specialty. Also reviewed is the workforce that will be needed to deliver future services: Clinical oncology workforce: the case for expansion.

The work of the Faculty is developed by and with members and Fellows of the RCR and close collaborative working with other professional bodies and the public and patients.
