SATURDAY, 10 MARCH 2012
Perfect for junior doctors starting their oncology rotation, or for physicians, surgeons and GPs looking for an update.
Patients with cancer represent 33% of deaths and approximately 25% of hospital admissions in the UK. However, many physicians have limited exposure to oncology in their training.
This course will provide invaluable grounding for core and specialist medical and surgical trainees, as well as an update for physicians, surgeons and GPs.
