American Academy of Oncology

FRAUD

Definition A bogus organisation unrelated to the official body of American oncologists, the American Society of Clinical Oncology or the American Cancer Society.

Comment For a fee, any doctor can apply and receive an impressive–and entirely worthless–certificate, which allows him to put the equally worthless FAAO (Fellow of the American Academy of Oncology) behind his or her name. Consumers should be wary of a doctor “certified” by this body.
