The Department of Oncology is one specialty of internal medicine, involving medical treatment of diverse tumors such as stomach cancer,

lung cancer, colorectal cancer, malignant lymphoma, multiple myeloma, pancreatic cancer, esophageal cancer, head & neck cancer, urologic cancer, sarcoma, and liver cancer.

Supported by ten cancer treatment teams within the Cancer Institute, we determine the best therapy for various cancerous growths by considering the patients’ medical records, comorbid diseases, and body condition, engaging in treatment, education, and research in chemotherapy and the latest molecular-targeted therapy We also try to offer optimal treatments using various supportive therapies in order to minimize the inconvenience cancer patients suffer and improve their quality of life.

A lot of medical professionals are engaged in an integrated treatment of fourteen cancers led by the Cancer Institute and treat outpatients. Inpatients receive treatment in three wards including the (Self) Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (HSCT) Ward. The Department of Oncology allows patients to receive anti-cancer treatment at the Chemotherapy Infusion Room without the need of hospitalization for the convenience of patients. We also implement clinical trials using a wide range of newly-developed anticancer drugs in close cooperation with the Clinical Research Center. We spur the development of new drugs by participating in detailed assignments of AMC which is selected as the Institute for Innovative Cancer Research for basic and implementation research.

With the aim of “selecting proper treatment method” and “maximizing its effectiveness and minimizing side effects,” we will do our best to conduct clinical trials and basic studies to offer the most effective treatment by determining the right approach and method of treatment, providing counseling and education to patients and their families.
