The concept "modulated time schedule" allows a temporal and local flexibility in arranging the workload. Further, a specific support-system and tutoring program will help you to organize your learning time and effort.


There is a growing global demand for academic continuing education of oncologists comprising - besides extensive clinical skills in various fields of oncology - aspects of patient management, standardization of treatment procedures as well as expertise in the performance of clinical trials and cooperation with the industry. Oncology is one of the medical specialties with the highest dynamics with respect to new findings as far as molecular mechanisms and their implementation in new therapies are concerned. The development of new drugs is accompanied by a growing demand for clinical trials, participating patients and physicians being operationally in charge of the studies.

The main objective of this Master Online Program is to improve the quality of patient treatment and care through the development of professional competencies and excellence. In order to attain this progress, we cooperate with health professionals and health care institutions worldwide and promote health care capacities by sharing scientific knowledge, methods and skills.
