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.
