The Department of Medical Oncology is an integral part of the Flinders Cancer Research Program providing leadership in new drug development, psycho-oncology and survivorship care.

In addition to delivering high-level care and support for patients requiring systemic treatment for cancer, the dedicated team of oncology specialists pursue a comprehensive research agenda.

Medical oncology is a key unit of the clinical sciences research platform of the Flinders Centre for Innovation in Cancer (FCIC ), an internationally recognised centre of excellence that offers significant translational research opportunities across cancer-related disciplines.

"The oncology department is involved in a range of exciting clinical research programs. There are currently medical and scientific PhD opportunities across all oncology programs with the potential for clinical trials and translational research."
