Description

The Gustave Roussy Medical Oncology Department is one of the largest in France with a team of more than 430 personnel. It covers a very wide clinical spectrum consisting of all cancer specialties as well as rare cancers.

Thus, the Department manages patients in the various stages of their disease (treatment, post-therapeutic follow-up and palliation) over the full range of solid tumours and haematological malignancy. It works closely with the Gustave Roussy consultative organ-specific cancer committees. Several of these are headed by a member of the Department:  

  • Dermatology
  • Digestive Tract
  • Gynaecology
  • Haematology
  • Breast disease
  • Chest Disease
  • Sarcomas / Complex Tumours
  • Urology

In parallel with this treatment activity, the department also provides more general services:  

  • gastrointestinal endoscopy 
  • oncogenetics
  • cell therapy centre (bone narrow transplant).

The activities of the Medical Oncology Department are based on the principal goals of the Gustave Roussy Institute:

  • Clinical management (conventional admissions, day hospital admissions and outpatient consultations)
  • Research activity
  • Teaching activity
