Cancer Oncologists and Their Qualifications

Different Types of Cancer Oncologists:

  • Medical Oncologist: The most common cancer specialist is a medical oncologist. This specialist is in charge of frequent, long-term checkups of a patient. A medical oncologist plays the role of an internist while using advanced tools like “Internal Medicine EHR Software” for treating patients in an efficient and organized manner. Medical oncologists are also in charge of administering chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and hormone therapy.
  • Radiation Oncologist: Radiation oncologists specialize in treating cancer patients  with the use of radiation therapy.Radiation therapy is the process of killing cancer cells by sending high-doses of radiation to the infected area. Although radiation therapy can harm the healthy cells surrounding the cancer-affected ones, the cancer-ridden cells die immediately, and the previously healthy cells will repair back to normal.
  • Surgical Oncologist: A surgeon specializing in the diagnosis of cancer with the help of a biopsy is a surgical oncologist. He often treats cancer by removing the cancer-affected tissues like tumors.

The most important qualifications for an oncologist are board certification, communication skills, and experience.
