Business arising from the Minutes
Institute of Oncology   (P.6593)
A proposal to establish an Institute of Oncology within the Faculty of
Medicine had been circulated at the previous meeting.   The report contained
the following reasons for establishing the institute:-
1. the importance of establishing the basis for residence training programs
in Oncology;
2. the importance of placing an academic structure alongside the newly
formed Cancer Control Agency of British Columbia with arrangements
permitting major professional appointments in the Cancer Control Agency
to carry faculty appointments as well;
3. the probability that inter-disciplinary work and joint recruitment will be
facilitated by the formation of a department;
4. the likelihood that the establishment of an Institute of Oncology will improve
the teaching of all aspects of cancer control and therapy to medical students.
The Faculty had considered establishing a Department rather than an
Institute but the criteria for departmental status seemed incomplete in the case
of Oncology.   However, the Faculty felt that the status of the Institute should be
reviewed within a maximum interval of five years.
Since the disciplines with which Oncology are primarily concerned lie
within the Faculty of Medicine, and since the Faculty of Graduate Studies was
not enthusiastic about the formation of additional institutes, it was proposed that
Oncology be established as an institute within the Faculty of Medicine. 6602.
