DUBAI, UAE, October 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Master Online Advanced Oncology Program of Ulm University goes in eight rounds
In October 2017, the Vice President for Teaching of Ulm University welcomed the eight cohort of students of the Master Online Advanced Oncology program. The home countries of the students (Australia, Canada, Belgium, Brazil, Ecuador, Egypt, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Tunisia and United Arab Emirates) reflect the world-wide demand of this unique postgraduate program in Advanced Oncology.
Following the formal welcome address and enrollment ceremony, the students received an administrative and technical introduction for the proper conduct of the study program. As the program is mainly performed online, the contents of the introductory seminar focused on the structure of the learning platform, interactivity and e-Learning. Furthermore, the module coordinators provided an overview on the contents (Interdisciplinary Oncology, Clinical Research, Advanced Therapies and Integrated Concepts and Management). Overall, more than 130 online-lecture units supplied by 150 experts in the field are offered to the students.
The first attendance seminar was completed by a visit of the Comprehensive Cancer Center Ulm. It is the main founding and cooperation partner of the Master Online Advanced Oncology program. Being one of the German "Oncological Centres of Excellence", it provides the basis for innovative and practice-related lectures. The students were impressed by the professionalism and internationality of the study program. Another profound partnership has been established with the European School of Oncology (ESO) that supports the study program and hosts the annual ESO-ESMO Masterclass in Berlin, Germany.
