ESO and SIOP Europe are pleased to announce their joint fellowship programme for young paediatric haematologists and oncologists aiming to gain clinical experience at renowned centres across Europe.
The aim is to support young and promising paediatric oncologists in education and in the development of their careers in cancer care. The aim of the training is to familiarize the trainees under supervision with all diseases of paediatric haematology and oncology and to instruct them in diagnostics and therapy. The programme gives oncologists of the future the opportunity to spend a defined period of time (3-6 months) at a centre of excellence in Europe where they will gain more knowledge in paediatric haematology and oncology and experience in a multi-disciplinary clinical setting specifically designed to address their needs. It is also expected that participants will acquire expertise in all issues dealing with the running of a successful cancer unit also including hospital management issues such as quality control.
Selected applicants for the ESO–SIOP Europe Clinical Training Centres Fellowship Programme who have successfully passed their 3 to 6 months stay at the host institution are very much encouraged and strongly supported in an application for the upcoming SIOP Europe Course in Paediatric Haematology and Oncology as a further part of their education in the field.
Currently, the following centres offer paediatric oncology fellowship places:
Comprehensive Cancer Centre Ulm, Ulm, Germany
Istituto Nazionale dei Tumori, Milan, Italy
Centre Leon Berard, Lyon, France
The Royal Marsden, NHS Foundation Trust, London, United Kingdom
