Approximately 600 to 700 major cases are attended to yearly on the surgical oncology service, with an emphasis on complicated, tertiary referral cancer problems. The intern, junior and chief residents rotating on the surgical oncology service are directly involved in the outpatient care of the private patients of the staff. Private clinics meet four times per week and are staffed by the residents and faculty. There is a breast clinic weekly. Besides the weekly tumor and breast conferences, the division maintains a fully accredited tumor registry.
