Oncology is a new subspecialty in internal medicine. It includes the study of the detection and diagnosis of neoplasms, their histopathology and biology, the modes of definitive and palliative therapies, and the care of patients dying from cancer. The medical oncologist has evolved to meet the demand for trained physicians to study the biologic nature of cancer and to manage patients with malignant diseases. Although medical oncology arose from various areas of science, the oncologist now represents a broadly trained internist primarily interested in the patient with cancer. Training programs are being expanded to meet the growing needs in this scientific field, which should constitute one of the subspecialties of the American Board of Internal Medicine.
