University Post-graduate Course - Clinical Oncology: Sarcomas

                                

The Universitiy of Milan, Italy, in close collaboration with ESO has launched a programme of post-graduate courses on rare adult solid cancers. This programme is addressed to an international audience of clinical oncologists interested in advancing their knowledge and skills on one or more adult solid cancers.

Both ESO and the University of Milan are involved as associated partners in the new established EURACAN, the European Reference Network on rare adult solid cancers. Thus, this educational effort is addressed to reinforce the collaboration among oncologists of different countries already involved in EURACAN, or in networks related to EURACAN, or willing to be part of it in the future. 

The course on Sarcomas was held from 22 to 26 January 2018 and here below you can find all the lectures that have been presented during the event by the following faculty:
