The Department’s home-base is at 5100 Boul. de Maisonneuve West, Suite 720, where the Chair and administrative offices are located.

This is the central hub for the Department’s 180+ ranked faculty members and associate members, all with cancer-related activities, who are located at McGill or its teaching hospitals (McGill University Health Centre, Jewish General Hospital, St. Mary’s Hospital Center).

Other departmental activities currently headquartered in the building include the Division of Cancer Epidemiology, coordination of the Visiting Speakers Program in Oncology (VSPO) and coordination of the Medical and Surgical Oncology Residency Training Programs.

The Department is multi- and trans-disciplinary by nature and collaborates with other McGill units that include cancer research and care amongst their activities. It is a focal point for interactions across the broad range of expertise at McGill, catalyzing the advancement of the overarching goal of cancer prevention and control.
