“This preceptorship exceeded my expectations. It covered all the major topics from screening to treating EBC to ABC in a comprehensive and interactive manner and it was helpful in questioning local practices by giving clear guidelines supported by strong evidence. I had a great experience interacting with international peers and specialists in the field and I believe I have learnt a lot in these two days.”

“This preceptorship offered a very valuable opportunity to get acquainted with the novelties in the therapy of prostate cancer. I have learned a lot about the classification and graduation of prostate cancer, treatment of localised prostate cancer, radiotherapy, sequencing of the therapy, as well as treatment monitoring. The communication with the faculty members was very amiable and productive. I was very pleased to meet the colleagues from all over Europe and share the different approach in treatment practices.

“This preceptorship course provided a unique opportunity to be updated in all aspects of Gastric Cancer from different multi-disciplinary experts, e.g. good overview of all relevant clinical trials (ongoing reported), what is new in endoscopic techniques, what a surgeon would consider optimal surgery etc. This course allowed me to come up with ideas for future research and provided me with a reminder of the evidence base for some of the decisions we make in everyday practice. Really good opportunity to network, update my knowledge and understand how practice might vary in other countries. Wonderful experience, very passionate faculty.”

Stavros Gkolfinopoulos

"This has definitely been a thought-provoking, practice-changing experience. After this, I can say that not only do I feel a better physician, but also I have the impression that I have been offered a wider perspective in an exciting and demanding discipline of oncology. After discussing with most of the other participants, I have the sense that this meeting has succeeded in conveying to us its most important message: that we should not manage AYA cancer patients as smaller versions of adults, but as unique individuals, with their own specific needs and worries that suffer from a disease with a unique biology, that calls for a specific approach."

Silvana-Adelina Gheorghe

"It was a magnificent and eye-opening experience for which I am very grateful. It is amazing what is happening in the field of immuno-oncology and I am glad I have chosen this specialty. Thanks to this Preceptorship I have learnt that basic science is strongly correlated with clinical science and that in order to be a complete doctor you have to understand and rely on both. This meeting will definitively bring a valuable contribution to my future practice, also because the subjects were approached in a very authentic and "patient" way that made them easy to understand for young oncologists like me."
Silvana-Adelina Gheorghe, Romania
Preceptorship on Immuno-Oncology, Lugano, May 2018


"During this meeting we had the opportunity to discuss new approaches which put patients into context as individuals, with all their needs and fears, but obviously still keeping in mind our treatment goals.

"It was a very enriching experience. I leave Manchester definitely more prepared to treat patients with lung cancer. The programme was very well balanced and it helped me organize my knowledge in lung cancer and fulfil some gaps I had, with the opportunity of questioning experts. It is always different to “learn from the books” than to have specialists in the field giving their own opinion about the data we have. Thank you for the opportunity! "
Marta Vaz Batista, Portugal

Fokter Nina

"This Preceptorship provided a bigger picture of the epidemiology, pathology, molecular biology, diagnostic approaches and treatment of Gastric Cancer than any other event. I will now consider additional aspects such as tumour heterogeneity when treating individual patients, and I will also make sure that the practice changing results of recent trials are implemented in my center. It is really amazing how dedicated ESMO is to education: we share the same goal - improving patient care - and I think that giving the same access opportunities to young oncologists from wealthy and less wealthy countries, as ESMO does, is crucial for this common objective."
Nina Fokter Dovnik, Slovenia
Gastric Cancer Preceptorship, Valencia, October 2017


“Participating in this meeting brought me a new awareness on the importance of sharing my opinion with other specialists in the management of patients with colorectal cancer to ensure a multidisciplinary decision making process. Given the content of the course, I will also much more consider the use of locoregional approaches other than surgery. The nice environment of this very informative meeting brought me to the conclusion that ESMO young oncologists are the beating heart of an innovative oncology consisting of new ideas and career opportunities.”
Elisa Giommoni, Italy

“Fantastic series of experienced lecturers from basics of Immuno-Oncology and Immuno-Therapy to translational work. This event helped me to understand intricate details and put things into perspective, especially during the clinical cases discussions. It was definitely helpful to focus on basic biology, as we increasingly use more immunotherapy as standard practice, especially in managing toxicities. Excellent organization, including venue and food. I have thoroughly enjoyed it and I will go home to tell other trainee colleagues to come.”
Jonathan Lim, United Kingdom

The presentations were full of interesting data and at the same time easy to understand. Now I can recognize the importance of signalling pathways and I changed my opinion about possible effects of vaccines. I would like to express my gratitude to ESMO for such an excellent opportunity.

Paul Lorigan

"The Prague Immuno-oncology Preceptorship was a great success and I feel privileged to have been involved with this with my colleague Olivier Michelin. We welcomed sixty young oncologists from all over the world (Australia, India, Vietnam, Lebanon, Ukraine, and Europe). The faculty was made up of international experts from a broad range of tumour-types who shared a common interest in immuno-oncology and an enthusiasm for education and research. The programme left plenty of time for discussion and indeed it was these interactions that were key to the success of the Preceptorship. All delegates submitted a case for discussion and five were selected for presentation. These were of a very high standard and represented a broad range of disease-types and challenging questions, congratulations to the presenters.

Immuno-oncology is changing how we treat cancer patients. It will be our young colleagues who have to develop and deliver the promise of this treatment approach. I learnt a lot at this meeting and I feel the attendees did as well. Congratulations to ESMO for organising and supporting such a worthwhile educational event."
