Oncology Specialists is a group of academically oriented physicians working in a community cancer care setting. Our physicians come from some of the most prominent academic medical centers in the United States. We are dedicated to clinical research. Virtually all of the advances in cancer care in the last fifty years were the result of clinical research, and we support research as the best way to improve the clinical care of cancer patients. We also believe that the best treatments can often be found as part of research studies.
We spend a significant amount of time in teaching activities for medical students, residents, and fellows. We also, through lectures by physicians, oncology-certified nurses, and advanced practice nurses, help to educate physicians and nurses in other local hospitals and outpatient programs. Many of our physicians and nurses at our Chicago-area cancer treatment centers participate in community-based educational programs as well. – less–ZoomInfo
