Elective Opportunities

These courses introduce students to basic concepts of cancer management including epidemiology, etiology, diagnosis, staging and treatment and an appreciation for radiotherapy as a therapeutic modality. Students will refine their physical examination skills by correlating laboratory, radiographic, and histopathologic findings with patients with malignant disease. Students will understand the principles of management decisions, including the roles of surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and immunotherapy in the treatment of individual patients. There will be informal discussions with staff physicians,residents and physicists concerning cancer management and treatment techniques.
