"Interdisciplinary Oncology"

Continuing Medical Education in Oncology
(Certificate of Advanced Studies)

Continuing medical education "Interdisciplinary Oncology"

The 5-month certificate continuing medical education course “Interdisciplinary Oncology” gives you a comprehensive overview of the cellular and molecular biology of tumors. Current methods of molecular and imaging diagnostics (FISH, sequencing, NGS) and modern therapeutic principles (immunotherapy, drug therapy, surgery and stem cell therapy) will be presented and discussed. In the course "Epidemiology" you will learn about the principles of global tumour documentation and gain a comprehensive insight into statistics and the characteristics of tumour registers.

During the final seminar you will study the principles of action of modern therapeutics as well as the advantages and disadvantages of different molecular biological diagnostics, refresh your knowledge of biometrics and learn how to extract molecular diagnostics from databases independently.

In addition, you will be joining our Master's students for the communication and presentation training and may explore personal coaching.

Medical Director: Prof. Dr. Christian Buske:

Suitable for all those who want to train in modern tumor therapy.
