    okay, i think i want to be an oncologist. i don't mean rad/onc, just sub-specialty of int med oncologist. i want to be completely clinical (little if any clinical research though i know it's a big field for that.)

    anyhow, can anyone tell me 1) how many post med school years (how many years in int med residency + onc fellowship) 2)i'm also looking for info on hours worked/pay ratio and how much on call. Lastly, how competitive is it to get into the fellowship program?

    Heme/Onc is a three year fellowship after a standard three year residency in Internal Medicine. FREIDA states that the average Heme/Onc physician spends about 46.6 hours a week in patient care per week. Salary.com lists the 25th percentile (national average) for salary to be $90,600, 50th percentile at $162,397, and 75th percentile at $204,515. There are 111 accredited programs training 818 fellows.
