Master Online Advanced Oncology

Growing Global Demand

There is a growing global demand for academic continuing education of oncologists comprising - besides extensive clinical skills in various fields of oncology - aspects of patient management, standardization of treatment procedures as well as expertise in the performance of clinical trials and cooperation with the industry. Oncology is one of the medical specialties with the highest dynamics with respect to new findings as far as molecular mechanisms and their implementation in new therapies are concerned. The development of new drugs is accompanied by a growing demand for clinical trials, participating patients and physicians being operationally in charge of the studies.
