CANCELLED: ESMO-ESO Course on Medical Oncology for Medical Students

Not eligible for ESCO credits

16.07.2020  -  21.07.2020

Valencia, Spain


Medical / clinical oncology

Important information

On behalf of ESO and ESMO we would like to inform you that due to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis we have made the difficult decision to cancel the ESMO-ESO Course on Medical Oncology for Medical Students programmed for 16-21 July in Valencia, Spain.

We deeply regret having to take this decision but we feel that in the current climate we all need to do our part in trying to limit the diffusion of the virus as much as possible and this was the only decision possible considering your role in society as medical staff.

We have discussed the possibility of postponing the event to later this year, but due to other already planned activities we have decided that postponing is not a viable solution.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused but we think you’ll all agree that this solution was unavoidable.
