At present, it is a construction unit for national key clinical specialty, key discipline and key specialty of the National Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and main unit for key discipline and key specialty of the Beijing Municipal Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Cancer Specialty Committee of Beijing Association of Chinese Medicine.
Leading by the academic pacesetter Professor Yu Rencun, a famous expert in the integration of traditional Chinese medicine and Western medicine, and the discipline leader Professor Wang Xiaomin, the Department of Oncology adheres to the development direction of the integration of traditional Chinese and Western medicine while highlighting the characteristics of traditional Chinese medicine. After many years of scientific exploration and clinical practice, a complete tumor diagnosis and treatment system of integrated traditional Chinese and western medicine has been constructed, forming unique academic characteristics and specialist advantages.
