Each division member has a full-time academic appointment with Queen’s University. Teaching activity includes lecturing in the undergraduate oncology curriculum, tutoring in the phase II Problem Based Learning series, phase II clinical skills instruction, active participation in the clinical clerk seminar series and regular contributions to the academic rounds in the departments of Surgery, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Otolaryngology and Urology. We are also active in the new Oncology Skills Lab teaching biopsy techniques.
The division of surgical oncology members are all jointly or cross appointed within the School of Medicine at Queen’s University and are active in residency teaching.
Specific surgical oncology clinical and research electives are available for both the undergraduate and resident trainees, including supervision for the undergraduate critical appraisal program. These electives are coordinated through the surgical oncology office.
Several members also serve as national specialty and fellowship examiners through the Royal College and CSSO, and participate as members of their specific residency training program committees.
