What specific skills does one need to be an oncologist?

I'm Dominica and a junior in high school. I have a passion for the medical field and I want to be an oncologist because I want to save the lives of cancer patients, and end up finding a cure for cancer. #psychology #pediatrics #pharmacy #oncology #medicine #hospital-and-health-care

I work with a pharmcy that sets up orders for delivery for medication for oncology,,,and it takes a strong person. The first person I had that I called that passed on was tough. It is going to take a lot of not cry and some patients do not tell the truth on how they take care of their body. It is important to have a close relationship with all your patients, but know to not bring it home or it will affect you mentally.
