Datepart function in Oracle

I want to use the datepart function to get the month of my variable:
Is this allowed in Oracle or am I off on the syntax?

Oracle does not have a datepart function. But the syntax:
 Datepart(month,abc_date) = '03'
can be converted to the following in the Oracle date routine:
 to_char(abc_date,'mm') = '03'
