    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?

  2. Thread continues after this sponsor message. SDN Members do not see this ad.
