Changing Oncology Education for the Betterer

Postby Maggie Nell » Sun Mar 05, 2017 10:21 am

I was diagnosed with bowel cancer at the age of 28.
In 2014, a few years after I was given the all-clear, I made the decision to become a doctor.
One of my reasons for taking up medicine was to learn more about cancer, and to use that knowledge and my experience to help people with the disease.

Since my own diagnosis five years ago, cancer has struck several members of my family and a number of close friends.

Cancer seems to be everywhere I look. That is, except the one place where I expected to find lots of it — medical school.


The biggest problem when it comes to a lack of cancer knowledge for
young doctors is lack of contact with people affected by cancer.
During my first year of medical school, I was surprised to not once encounter
a cancer advocate or person with cancer as part of my learning.
