The concept of specialty education in cancer treatment and diagnosis was initiated very early by the Dorabji Tata Trust as one of the main and important mandate of this centre. As long ago as 1938 when the hospital was under construction, Sir Nowrozji ad Mr. J R D Tata consistently supported a comprehensive approach and maintained importance of education and research.
Sir Roger Lumley, Governor of Bombay was immensely impressed with this vision and appreciated this vision of the Dorabji Trust. In his inaugural address he said “ … You are attacking it on the three fronts of treatment, education and research - all three of them essential and interdependent – an I must express my admiration for the completeness of your plan.”
Perhaps as initiation of such academic activity, the trust had send young Indian doctors abroad to train in cancer treatment and diagnosis, and who later joined this centre as permanent staff when the hospital opened for public. Thus, education and training of personnel has received much attention at the Hospital - even before it started functioning.
