The Department of General Oncology provides outpatient consults, inpatient services as well as the following programs: Regional Care Centers in the Bay Area, Sugar Land, Katy and the Woodlands; Integrative Medicine; Lyndon B. Johnson (LBJ) Medical Oncology; Community Clinical Oncology Program (CCOP) Research Base; and the International Cancer Assessment Center (ICAC).
A key attribute of General Oncology is versatility, flexibility, and the ability to manage very complex patients in conjunction with or in lieu of the subspecialist oncologists. Faculty members in the Department of General Oncology also bring the ability to provide care in a variety of community settings under flexible conditions.
Our vision is to make distinct and groundbreaking contributions to patient care, research, and education through robust programs that are focused on a broad mix of cancer patients in a variety of settings.
The mission of the Department of General Oncology to eliminate cancer, reflects the core mission of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.
