What are the differents careers in pediatric oncology?
I'm a junior in high school and I've been trying to figure out what I would like to do the rest of my life. I know I want to do something in the medical field and have been leaning towards oncology. I would also love to do something with pediatrics, but I have no idea what jobs are out there in pediatric oncology. I have done a lot of research but came seem to find any answers. Can anyone help?
