Frequently Asked Questions
Can MOGA recommend a medical oncologist? No, as a membership body MOGA cannot make recommendations regarding specific medical oncologists. However, we have the Find an Oncologist function which allows you to search for oncologists in your area or by specialisation. Find an Oncologist includes MOGA members who have elected to make their work details available to the public.
I need clinical advice regarding cancer, can MOGA help? No, MOGA does not provide medical advice. You should speak with a licensed physician if you require advice.
How many medical oncologists are there in Australia? MOGA is currently undertaking a study to learn more about the Australian medical oncology workforce, the results of which will be made public at the completion of the study. It should be noted that MOGA is an elective professional body for medical oncologists and in general does not keep information on non-members.
How do I contact the MOGA membership? MOGA does not give out membership contact details for commercial purposes. In general, MOGA is happy to promote non-commercial news items and events through channels such as the Newsletter, Website and E-News Bulletins if it is deemed appropriate and of interest to the membership (email firstname.lastname@example.org). Surveys to the membership are limited and must be approved by the MOGA Ethics subcommittee; please click here more details.
How do I gain access to the secure portions of the Website? Some portions of the Website are for member access only (if you are a member and experiencing difficulty please contact us at email@example.com).
I would like to undertake training in medical oncology in Australia. What's the first step? The Royal Australasian College of Physicians is responsible for medical oncology training. If you wish to join the College's training program, you would firstly need to secure a training position within an Australian hospital accredited by the College for basic physician training. Once a suitable position (as confirmed by the Director of Physician Training) is secured, you would be eligible to apply to join the College's training program. A list of accredited hospitals and training guidelines can be found within the Requirements for Physician Training on the College's website at Adult Medicine: http://www.racp.edu.au/training/adult2003/basic/general/locations.htm.
Please note MOGA is not responsible for the provision of medical oncology training. Any enquiries regarding training should be directed to the Royal Australasian College of Physicians on (+61 2) 9256 5444.
Please direct any other questions to the MOGA Secretariat: firstname.lastname@example.org.
