This residential programme has been designed for medical and clinical oncologists, who wish to improve their skills or those who are preparing for the national board or ESMO exam. The programme will expose participants to a full spectrum of issues in clinical and medical oncology from basic science to advanced knowledge of systemic therapy as well as in the multidisciplinary treatment approach. It is intended to cover all major topics of ESMO-ASCO curriculum on medical oncology.

Being selected to take part in an ESO Masterclass is one of the ESO activities that gives participants eligibility to enrol in ESCO - the College of the European School of Oncology.
A Masterclass also enables ESCO students to earn ESCO credits and therefore access more ESCO benefits. Full and active participation in the Masterclass earns participants 30 ESCO credits.
