What is Oncology Clinical Experience?

Oncology Clinical Experience is a hospital based oncology training course and combines theoretical teaching with practical example. Physician taught lectures are combined with visits to clinics and delegates have the opportunity to interact with patients in small group sessions.

Oncology Clinical Experience offers rapid and progressive face-to-face training taught by clinician experts and the care team.  This course thoroughly equips attendees with theoretical and practical knowledge to discuss Oncology and its treatment confidently and credibly.

Participants are provided with an overview of the spectrum of malignant disease and there is unique opportunity for delegates to experience – first hand – the assessment and treatment options utilised within the overall management of patients with malignant disease. Open discussions and case presentations form a key part of the programme.
