About e-ESO

The European School of Oncology offers oncology e-learning courses and sessions via e-ESO (www.e-ESO.net), a platform dedicated to providing distance learning material in the form of:

- E-sessions (live and recorded);
- Slides and videos from ESO's events.

The material is divided into three categories:

On demand materials (past live sessions that have been recorded and can be viewed online);

Downloadable PDF presentations from past ESO events;

Future live sessions (scheduled sessions that will be presented live online at an indicated date and time - participants can interact with the speakers during the sessions).


e-ESO sessions are free, educational sessions conducted live on the internet and are offered without any commercial sponsorship. Selected sessions have CME accreditation.

Selected e-ESO educational materials have been organised into PATHWAYS: a series of sessions on a specific topic that provide a general overview. After completing a pathway, the attendee will be able to download a specific certificate of attendance.

e-ESO sessions are categorized both by topic and by type:

- Grandround Sessions - sessions on hot-topics
- Highlights Sessions - key takeaways from major international events
- From ESO Events - speeches given during selected ESO conferences
- Debate Sessions - discussions about differing opinions
- Oncoreview Sessions - balanced and comprehensive overview of a specific topic
- Clinical Case Sessions - discussions of clinical cases
- Oncology Basics - sessions on the basics of oncology
- Social Media Sessions - streamed sessions organised in collaboration with We Oncologists & ESO Presents)
