Members & Trainees
Basic physician trainees have the opportunity to choose medical oncology as a career path during the last year of basic training. Trainees that take on medical oncology then spend two years in core training in medical oncology and one year in elective training in a discipline which directly relates to medical oncology.
Once physicians choose to complete advanced training in medical oncology and are accepted by the Speciality Advisory Committee in Medical Oncology of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP), the trainees are immediately eligible for membership to the Medical Oncology Group of Australia. Advanced trainees also have their own committee of representatives from each state and territory, as well as a national representative who represents trainees on the Executive Committee and other organisations as required.
The benefits to trainees of joining the Medical Oncology Group of Australia are on the Trainee Support page.
Additionally, advanced trainees in medical oncology experience a wide variety of opportunities, challenges and education throughout their three years of training and beyond as consultant oncologists, such as:
- Teaching opportunities
- Leadership opportunities
- Clinical Trials
- Research options (PhD, Masters etc)
- Travel award opportunities
- International training, education and collaboration opportunities
- Communication Skills Training
- Journal Club
