Education Fulfilling the Mission of Huntsman Cancer Institute
Huntsman Cancer Institute’s mission is to understand cancer from its beginnings, to use that knowledge in the creation and improvement of cancer treatments, to relieve the suffering of cancer patients, and to provide education about cancer risk, prevention, and care.
The Division of Oncology does just that, through our distinguished education program, our vast areas of research and excellent patient care. Our faculty has a wide variety of clinical interest from gastrointestinal, to breast, melanoma, neuro-oncology, and thoracic oncology. Many of our faculty are lead researchers in their field as well as have enrolled many patients into clinical trials.
The oncology division focuses on three main missions: clinical, research, and education. In building an exceptional oncology program, we combine our experienced and caring physicians, our passion for research, and our commitment to teaching. Whether you are a patient looking for the right treatment, a medical professional seeking an outstanding fellowship training opportunity, or a medical researcher committed to advancing knowledge in basic or clinical oncology research, the University of Utah’s Division of Oncology has resources to meet your needs.
Currently, our division consists of 14 full-time and two adjunct faculty members. We have 14 fellows enrolled in our combined Hematology/Oncology Fellowship program.
