Latin America

Coordinator: Fedro A. Peccatori, IT

Latin-America has a cultural and linguistic link to Europe. Technological developments in medicine may come from the US, but a lot of thinking and knowledge in care still comes from Europe and Latin-Americans want both.

In 2015, with great enthusiasm, ESO resumed its activities in Latin America through the first ESO-ESMO Latin American Masterclass. Our Masterclasses are clinically oriented residential educational programmes aimed at physicians who are interested in improving their skills in managing cancer patients.

The Latin American Programme takes the traditional Masterclass format and admission procedures, yet gives special attention to the specific needs of the countries in Latin America. The location of the yearly Masterclass rotates among  the  Latin-American  sub-regions.

Like all Masterclasses, the number of participants is limited and admission is by competitive application only. Admitted participants are granted free registration and half-board accommodation for the duration of the Masterclass. 

Further expansion of  the programme was implemented by including past Masterclass participants in ESO’s Clinical Training Centres Fellowship programme.
