Description

Praise for the First Edition

As everyone in oncology fellowship training knows, there is a huge information gap in this field. Most oncology books are massive and loaded with information by the time the book is published it is outdated. Tumor Board Review is fresh and just out of the oven. I haven't seen any book in oncology like this so far. I think my investment in this book was wise and worth it.

Humaid Al-Shamsi, MB(Hon), BMedSc, MRCP(UK), FRCP, FACP, Assistant Professor, The University of Texas, MD Anderson Cancer Center

Culling the knowledge and expertise of respected oncology specialists, this is a concise yet comprehensive review of all areas of oncology practice for medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and pathologists both students and practitioners.
