Neurologists must complete one year of 1-year basic training before starting their residency program. The American Medical Association's online FREIDA service is an interactive database of more than 9,400 graduate medical education programs. All of these programs are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.

There is also information on more than 200 blended specialty programs. Specialist training in clinical and medical oncology begins after basic medical training (CMT), which includes completion of MRCP (UK). Clinical oncology training is supervised through the Royal College of Radilogists and Medical Oncology through the Royal College of Physicians. All oncology training programs follow a structured curriculum and offer training in the basic sciences of cancer and the management of malignancies.

During training, most trainees rotate from the main (base) hospital to other hospitals to gain extensive practice experience. In Northern Ireland, students work at the Cancer Centre at Belfast City Hospital and attend clinics in each of the four Cancer Units. Oncology is the study of cancer. An oncologist is a doctor who treats cancer and provides medical care to a person who has been diagnosed with cancer.

The oncologist may also be called a cancer specialist. In most medical schools, the first two years are taken with classroom study before students are tasked with doing rotations.
