The 4th Post-Graduate Course in Oncology for General Practitioners and Young Oncologists aims to provide an update of the role of GP in oncology and to serve as an introduction to the residence in Medical Oncology, in a 3-day residential educational event, addressing all aspects of cancer. The clinically oriented educational program has been designed for those who wish to improve their skills in this field and to fill this gap in their curriculum.
The participants, specialists or residents in General Practice and residents in Medical Oncology, will be selected through evaluation of their CV.
The course offers plenary lectures regarding state-of-the-art in oncology with reference to clinical guidelines and concluding with take-home messages. Participants will deliver case presentations within small groups and discuss these with the chairmen and the faculty.
All sessions will be interactive and participants must be prepared to join in. Accepted participants will be requested to take part in the whole event. At the final of the course the participants will have an exam similar to that of ESMO, adapted to the objectives of the course.
The official languages of the course will be Portuguese and Spanish.
