So you want to be...a medical oncologist.

Abstract

We are all influenced in our choice of career by senior doctors that we come into contact with as medical students or junior doctors. I had such an influential encounter as a student at Barts. Professor Gordon Hamilton-Fairley was a new breed in a fledgling specialty which was burgeoning in the USA as a result of dramatic advances in the treatment of patients with haematological malignancies, especially Hodgkin's disease. His appeared to be a rather maverick world, the treatments could not be found in any textbook and patients were scattered the length and breadth of the hospital.
