Hello, I am Maura Polansky, Director of Physician Assistant Education at the University of Texas, MD Anderson Cancer Center. Welcome to our Professional Oncology Education Website. We have developed the Introduction to Clinical Oncology course for healthcare professionals including physicians and physician assistants as well as others involved in the care of cancer patients. MD Anderson experts in Genetics, Cancer Biology, Medical, Surgical, and Radiation Oncology, Emergency Medicine, and Palliative Care provide instruction for this course. The course provides an overview of Clinical Oncology to include cancer biology, prevention and screening, principles of diagnosis and treatment, and supportive care. We hope that the resources that we are providing on this Website will be of value to you in your practice. Please visit our site often as new lectures and other professional educational resources become available, and let us know if there are any subjects of particular interest for you. We look forward to receiving your feedback.
