MASTERCLASS

Paediatric oncology

Description

Chair: R. Riccardi, IT - M.C.G. Stevens, UK - A. Eggert, DE
Educational Advisor: W. Gatzemeier, IT
 


AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: "TRANSLATING KNOWLEDGE INTO CLINICAL PRACTICE"

ESO and SIOP-Europe are pleased to announce the third Masterclass in Paediatric Oncology. This clinically-oriented educational programme has been designed for young paediatric oncologists who wish to improve their skills in clinical management of common childhood tumours. It is designed to offer a unique learning experience, providing practice-oriented training and the teaching sessions will focus on the application of the most recent research findings to clinical practice .

TEACHING FORMAT
The Masterclass offers main sessions each day focusing on state-of-the-art treatment of more common diagnoses (CNS tumours, soft tissue and bone sarcoma,
neuroblastoma and Wilms’ tumour) which are supplemented by overview sessions dealing with less frequently occurring tumours (for example, retinoblastoma,
hepatoblastoma). Special lectures will address more general topics such as radiotherapy, clinical trials and new drug development. Case presentations prepared
by all the participants will be discussed between the participants and the experts. The chairman will close each day with a summary to identify the lessons of the day.

IDEAL MASTERCLASS CANDIDATE
• Age between 30 and 40 years
• 2-4 years experience in paediatric oncology
• Involvement in scientific activities and clinical trials
• Fluency in English

The Masterclass in 
Paediatric Oncology is an
ESO-SIOP Europe joint event
