EMUC: full-day ESU Medical Oncology course on Genitourinary Cancer

Thu, 25 Oct 2012

On the occasion of the 4th EMUC, the European School of Urology will be organising a separate teaching event aimed at all medical specialists involved in the treatment of urological cancers. The ESU Medical oncology course on genitourinary cancer (MOGUC) aims to highlight best practices in the field and provide the participants with the knowledge that’s instrumental in every-day clinical practice. All urologists, medical oncologists and radiation oncologists are invited to take part in this masterclass.The all-day course takes place on November 15, the day before the regular EMUC programme begins, and it is chaired by Profs Joan Palou (ES) and Hein Van Poppel (BE). “This is the first time the ESU is offering a day-long meeting. This course will be a good chance for both experienced and young urological cancer experts to look closely into the latest developments in the medical treatment of GU cancers,” they explain.

“GU cancer specialists will have the opportunity to directly ask the invited speakers who are among the most experienced teachers from the best multidisciplinary teams in Europe,” added Van Poppel.

MOGUC covers all areas of genitourinary cancer, with expert speakers from seven European countries providing the latest insights. The morning’s presentations on kidney cancer cover different aspects of metastatic disease and concludes with a half-our interactive case discussion between the two speakers. This pattern is repeated on topics like prostate cancer, testis cancer, bone therapy and bladder cancer.

The day begins with a pre-knowledge test, and concludes with a post-knowledge test, allowing participants to gauge their progress. This ESU course is an independent initiative and it is possible to register for it separately from EMUC. Registering for both events will result in a discount on the course fee.
