Club Description

This club will be of special interest to anyone that foresees a profession in Oncology. With that being said, cancer patients often have many other health conflicts other than their cancer, frequently from subsequent complications by chemotherapy. This club will offer insight into these patients’ lives and treatments to better sympathize and better treat your patient in any field of medicine.


Oncology Club would like to introduce to you, the new 2022 E-Board Officers! If you are interested in learning more about the field of Oncology and joining our efforts to raise cancer awareness, this club is a great fit for you! Please stay tuned for more information about our upcoming guest speaker events and volunteer opportunities. We look forward to serving you this year!
