Clinical oncologist

Clinical oncologists are doctors who use non-surgical ways of treating tumours. This includes radiotherapy and/or chemotherapy.

Clinical oncologists train in all types of tumour, but specialise in one or two types as a consultant – for example, brain tumours. If they specialise in brain tumours, they may use the job title of neuro-oncologist.

They often work together with medical oncologists.
