Certificate of Advanced Studies in Lung cancer - second cohort (CASLu2)

24.03.2021  -  26.05.2022



Lung cancer


Certificate of Competence in Lung cancer (CASLu) programme

Programme Chairs: Alessandra Curioni, CH; Enriqueta Felip, ES; Matthias Guckenberger, CH; Rolf Stahel, CH

The European School of Oncology (ESO) in cooperation with the University of Zurich has developed a post-graduate curriculum of studies designed for medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, thoracic surgeons, radiologists and pathologists, but it is equally accessible to graduates in natural sciences, who are engaged in the field of oncology, especially in the field of thoracic malignancies.

The objective of the programme is to advance the knowledge and science in the management of patients affected by lung cancer or other thoracic malignancies with a curriculum that extends over a period of 15 months and includes three seminars and four e-learning modules.

The programme is academically recognised with 14 European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System Points (ECTS) by the University of Zurich and upon successful completion, participants obtain an academic certificate and a diploma supplement issued by the University of Zurich.

The current CASLu cohort started in March 2021 and will conclude in May 2022. The subsequent cohort will run from 2023 to 2024. Admission to the programme is by competitive application only and is limited to 25 participants.
