ESMO Advanced Courses: Testimonials

Are you thinking of applying to take part in an ESMO Advanced Course? Previous participants share their thoughts and experiences...


"This advanced course will influence my daily practice as it has improved the skills I need to be part of the MTBs meetings in my home institute. A personalised medicine approach will become more used in the near future and oncologists should be properly trained to deal with NGS testing. The experts’ panel was well prepared to deliver a comprehensive education about a very theoretical field. I really appreciated their willingness to discuss difficult topics and the open atmosphere created."

ESMO Advanced Course on Biomarkers for Precision Medicine, Zürich, November 2019


"I really appreciated the quality of organisation, programme and competence of the speakers throughout the course. The course provided a complete and effective overview of the NTRK testing and treatments. It was a great experience and I hope to be able to have the opportunity to participate in other courses."

ESMO Advanced Course on NTRK Gene Fusion, Barcelona, October 2019


"The course provided the opportunity to listen to comprehensive lectures and actively participate in group discussions with colleagues from other countries. I have learnt about a brand-new field in precise oncology – the NTRK gene fusion and TRK inhibitors as well as new drugs under development. Thank you ESMO for a perfectly organised course!"

ESMO Advanced Course on NTRK Gene Fusion, Lyon, September 2019


"The meeting was awesome in all aspects: scientific content, faculty, venue and organization. By participating I learnt about the management of advanced prostate cancer with a comprehensive approach. It also gave the immense opportunity to interact with an international faculty. I will now be able to offer state-of-the-art treatments to my patients and stop using bone modifying agent in castration-naive metastatic disease due to absence of supporting data. Thank you ESMO!"

Petra Vuković

"I believe ESMO could not have a better concept for education than Advanced Courses. I'm amazed by this course, the interactivity there and everything I have learned. This course highlighted the importance of individualizing MDT approach taking into consideration all the specificity of neuroendocrine tumour biology and reflecting on both diagnostic and treatment options, treatment complications and patient's wishes. It provided evidence-based background, pointing specificities regarding NENs studies and their clinical implications, and reflected on current unmet needs in this field which are going to be a subject of future research."​

ESMO Advanced Course on Individualising the therapeutic approach in patients with NENs, Barcelona, June 2019

Lilit Harutyunyan

"Neuroendocrine tumours are rare malignancies and there is a lack of experience and literature, therefore this course was really helpful as it gave us a lot of useful information in a very interactive atmosphere. I found the workshop part particularly effective as it helped us to improve our clinical way of thinking and to consider the importance of a multidisciplinary team."

ESMO Advanced Course on Individualising the therapeutic approach in patients with NENs, Barcelona, June 2019


"This advanced course was a great opportunity to keep up with the complex and fast changing world of oncology and to learn how a multidisciplinary approach is the best way to manage patients. The knowledge gained during this course allowed me to learn, unlearn and re-learn data regarding prostate cancer management and will help me to choose the best clinical approach tailored to each single patient. The workshops were one of the highlights of this course: they allowed us to interact actively and challenged us to apply what we already knew and what we have learnt during the course to real clinical case scenarios."

Maria Diana Aileen Chua Bautista, Philippines
ESMO Advanced Course on Clinical Questions in Prostate Cancer, Singapore, September 2018


"The meeting was excellent. The interactive approach was very innovative and useful. The Faculty was outstanding and composed of high level experts in every field of immuno-oncology, including some of the rising stars of the European medical oncology field. I have learnt how to manage and recognize immune-related adverse events of special interest, especially in unusual organs, and how to better interpret responses to immuno-oncology."
