In brief: Clinical / research

Pediatric hematologist/oncologists can perform full time clinical service in a group practice or in an academic center. They can perform clinical research in association with clinical service.
They can perform basic science or translational research primarily or exclusively. Lastly, with experience and accomplishment, they can become administrators

In brief: Several!

After training as a pediatric oncologist, you can provide clinical care to children.
You can combine clinical care with research, or you can do research alone. This can be basic (laboratory) research, or translational research where you bring basic research to patient care. This can be at a hospital, or with a pharmaceutical company. You just need to decide what makes you feel most fulfilled.
