Recommendations for a Global Curriculum in Medical Oncology

Global-Curriculum-Block-1000x250

The Recommendations for a Global Curriculum in Medical Oncology are a set of common guidelines with a global perspective for the clinical training required for physicians to qualify as medical oncologists.

The ESMO / ASCO Global Curriculum Working Group outlined the curriculum with the goal of defining standards in guiding the training of medical oncologists worldwide and to ensure that all patients have an equal chance of receiving treatment from well-trained physicians.

The first edition of the Curriculum was published in 2004 and distributed worldwide to universities, training hospitals, and medical oncology societies. It has been published in 11 languages and used as a model for development of the specialty of medical oncology in several countries around the world. The chapters included in the second, 2010 edition of the Curriculum were shaped to a significant degree with advances in the management of patients with malignant diseases since the first edition was produced.

Building on the improvements implemented to the previous two editions, the 2016 edition has been expanded and updated by more than one hundred contributors who dedicated their oncologic and didactic expertise. The section/chapter structure has also been revised. The quality of the learning objectives of each topic is now divided into three categories: Awareness, Knowledge and Skills. This third edition of the Curriculum is endorsed by 51 national oncology societies worldwide.
