ONCOLOGY


Oncology II

The second-year resident is introduced to the principles of diagnosis and treatment of the patient with malignant disease during two 6-week rotations. Participation in the oncology clinics and daily teaching rounds provides familiarity with gynecologic pathology. Ward care and operating room responsibilities are initiated.


Oncology III

During the two 6-week rotations, the third-year resident participates in more complicated gynecologic surgery procedures, and assumes greater responsibility for the management of seriously ill patients.


Oncology IV

Throughout the two 6-week rotations, the chief resident assists with all oncology surgery and, when appropriate, acts as the primary surgeon under the supervision of the faculty. The resident has a greater degree of involvement in robotic cases. The chief resident also is responsible for coordinating the care of all hospitalized patients and patients referred to the oncology clinic.
