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 module "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.

Continuing medical education "Advanced Therapies in Oncology":

The 5-month certificate continuing medical education course "Advanced Therapies in Oncology" gives you an intensive insight into the entire field of Clinical Oncology. This includes the aetiology, epidemiology, diagnosis and therapy of solid tumours as well as malignant neoplasms of the blood-forming system. In addition, you will learn and refresh other important aspects of comprehensive cancer care: palliative care, evidence-based complementary therapy concepts, pain management and psycho-oncology. Lectures and workshops on conducting conversations in a clinical context round off the continuing education and you also have the opportunity to take advantage of a personal coaching.
