Medical Sciences Summer School Oncology
A course on clinical and experimental Oncology
T1 track: The goal of this track is to get familiar with oncological care in practice, to learn about treatment of the most common tumors and learn about oncology-related problems. It focuses on communication with patients, palliative care, pain management, terminal care and euthanasia. In the afternoon, the track will continue with a clinical program including; clinical reasoning, discussion about prepared presentations by the participants, ward rounds, skills training at the Clinical Training Centre, tours to the radiology department and the PET centre, etc.
T2 track: The purpose of this program is to introduce various exciting aspects of translational oncological research, with a focus on cutting edge research topics from within the University Medical Center Groningen. The participants of this track attend the same morning program as the clinical T1 track. The afternoons will be different and more research based. The students will be introduced to different facilities and laboratories and given interactive lectures by top-researchers from different backgrounds. The research areas that will be covered are: Fundamentals of preclinical and clinical cancer research, t argeted therapy (bench to bedside), epigenetics in cancer, systems biology, tumor stem cells, tumor imaging and patient tailored therapy. Furthermore, participants will give a PowerPoint presentation about their subject and have the opportunity to gain some hands-on experience in performing laboratory experiments.
In the evenings a varied social program was offered for relaxation and further getting to know each other.
