MAS in medical oncology

General information

The aims of the MAS in medical oncology are the following:

  • to gain the necessary knowledge and the practical know-how in order to exercise an independent activity in all the fields related to medical oncology;
  • to assimilate knowledge within a pluridisciplinary approach while getting acquainted with other disciplines concerned with malignant tumours medicine;
  • to correctly interpret recommendations, publications and scientific reports within the speciality.

  • Oncology outpatient clinic
  • Hospital consultations and oncology therapy unit

  • Clinical neurosciences and dermatology (NEUCLID) consultation (ORL, neurosurgery, bone metastases)
  • Onco-genetic unit
