We are seeking a medical oncologist to join our practice. This is an excellent opportunity to join a practice that is considered a leader in regional Australia.

The practice sees both public and private patients across a broad range of tumour types.

Multidisciplinary clinics are established for common malignancies as well as teleconferencing and mentoring links with metropolitan centres for the co-management of less common tumours. Albury Wodonga Health and the AWRCC is an associate site of the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre enabling clinical, research and educational partnerships.
