Alberta General Practitioner in Oncology
Focused Training Program
University of Calgary
Family physicians play an important role in the care of cancer patients in Alberta. In addition to seeing cancer patients in their primary care clinics, some family physicians act as clinical associates in urban cancer centre clinics, supervise chemotherapy in community cancer centres, run supportive care survivorship clinics and help care for cancer inpatients admitted to hospital. In the past, few general practitioners in oncology (GPO) have had formal training. Recently, a number of third year enhanced skills programs and continuing medical education programs in cancer care for family physicians have been developed at several other Canadian universities.
