Non-Clinical Opportunities in Oncology

I find that many executive recruiters are looking for physicians and other healthcare professionals who have expertise in oncology. Why? Because so much is happening in the world of oncology research. Think about all that has happened in the last few years! We've seen new biologics (targeted therapies), genetic tests, assays for oncogenes and tumor markers, novel mechanisms to detect residual disease (like circulating tumor cells), and much more! Oncology is truly an exciting area right now, especially because this is where technology and medicine are colliding to improve patient care.
