Overview

We have been pleased to run this comprehensive course in Edinburgh since 2000. It is designed for trainees in Clinical Oncology at the start of their preparation for the FRCR exam part 2 and trainees in Medical Oncology at the start of their preparation for MRCP(UK) Specialty Certificate Examination in Medical Oncology. Specialty Doctors in Oncology find the course very useful, as do Consultants looking for a refresher. Specialist Nurses may often attend for their specialty day. The programme includes lectures, MDM discussions and clinical case scenarios and has consistently received excellent feedback from delegates.
