TESTIMONIALS
Testimonials received from faculty and participants of the course.


ESO, ESSO and ESTRO are pleased to announce the jointly organised multidisciplinary course in oncology for medical students. The key goal of this course is encouraging medical students to specialize in an oncology related discipline. Previous editions organized by ECCO since 2005 got very positive and enthusiastic feedback from the students who had spent two weeks over summer with experienced teachers to receive theoretical and practical training in cancer care.
The multidisciplinary course in oncology will provide insight into all aspects of oncology with both theoretical and practical sessions. The programme incorporates plenary sessions, case study presentations, daily special visits to various oncology departments and group course projects that must be finalized and presented at the end of the course.
The course has been designated for European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System Credits (ECTS).
