Department of Oncology

The Department of Oncology at Mayo Clinic has one of the largest, most comprehensive cancer diagnosis and treatment programs in the world. It is closely aligned with the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center, a National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center. Mayo Clinic Cancer Center ranks in the top tier of cancer centers in the United States for cancer research, clinical treatment and education.

Each year, more than 12,000 people are diagnosed with more than 200 different types of cancer and receive treatment through the department, which includes more than 50 oncologists.


The teaching faculty working in the clinics and hospitals are exclusively Mayo Clinic staff. Therefore, the Mayo patient population is available to provide an extensive learning opportunity and experience for fellow education.

The teaching staff is dedicated to the three shields of Mayo's emblem: clinical practice, education and research.
