The 8th Eastern European Masterclass in Medical Oncology is a closed event for selected participants only.
The Masterclass will be entirely in English and fluency in English is necessary for admission.
Aims, objectives and teaching format
The Masterclass is a full immersion, clinical oriented event designed for medical and clinical oncologists focusing on multidisciplinarity. The programme will expose participants to a full spectrum of issues in clinical and medical oncology from basic science to advanced knowledge of systemic therapy as well as the multidisciplinary treatment approach. It offers plenary lectures regarding state-of-the-art clinical evaluation and treatments with reference to clinical guidelines. Participants will deliver case presentations within tumour boards and discuss them with an international faculty of top experts of each tumour type.
IDEAL PROFILE OF THE MASTERCLASS CANDIDATE
• Age between 30 and 40 years
• At least 2-3 years’ experience in medical oncology or clinical oncology
• Involvement in scientific activities
• Fluency in English
The Online Masterclass will be carried out in two different parts:
Pre-recorded sessions will be made available via this website. You will be able to see all the sessions in your own time.
The pre-recorded sessions must be viewed before block 2 (Live event).
When you finish watching a set of sessions on a specific tumour, please send us up to 3 questions related to the sessions. Some of your questions will be selected and answered during part 2 in the Q&A sessions.
The in person event will be held from 21-25 May 2022.
During the live event, a lecture will be delivered for each main tumour group and will cover topics of interest for oncologists working in the Eastern European area. Each lecture will be followed by a Q&A session using some of the questions that were sent for block 1.
All participants will present a clinical case and discuss it with the experts.
It is possible we may need to change the participants' case topic in order to keep a balance between all tumour types.
