Likewise, in 1967, Dr. Irv Lerner, also educated at the University of Minnesota, became the first physician formally trained in medical oncology to enter private practice in St. Paul.According to Dr. Lerner, he and Dr. Brown were the only private practice oncologists in the state at the time to have had that formal training.The early practice of oncology and hematology was similar in both cities.Rather than single specialty clinics, oncologists were part of multi-specialty practices devoting only part of their time to treating cancer patients.Before Dr. Lerner, decisions about cancer in St. Paul were made by surgeons and radiation oncologists with little input from a chemotherapist.However, when he arrived, his oncology practice quickly dwarfed his internal medicine practice.Dr. Lerner and his group continued to practice internal medicine and oncology until the creation of MOHPA.
