Master Course Pediatric Oncology
Starting in 2017, the Princess Máxima Center will organize a Master Course Pediatric Oncology. This concerns an educational program consisting of four modules which together cover the entire field of our work: general aspects, hemato-oncology, solid tumors and neuro-oncology. This course is an excellent opportunity for fellows in pediatric oncology to obtain a comprehensive theoretical training. The program is also ideal for pediatric oncologists and other professionals working in pediatric oncology who are looking for a focused postgraduate educational program. The first course started on April 20,2017. The second course starts on November 2, 2017.
The Master Course Pediatric Oncology is targeted at fellows in pediatric oncology. In addition, pediatric oncologists, other medical professionals and scientists who wish to expand and to update their knowledge on pediatric oncology are welcome if there are still some slots available.
We advise to attend all four modules, but it is possible to register for selected modules as well. After attending all four modules, you will have a broad theoretical and practical understanding of pediatric oncology, regarding general aspects, hemato-oncology, solid tumors and neuro-oncology. Focus is on knowledge and understanding of clinical issues. However, preclinical and translational research will be covered as well, and so will themes such as ethical issues.
International and national faculty
A number of international experts will participate in each Module, by giving lectures, chairing workshops and discussing difficult cases. These experts for Modules 1 are:

In addition, a number of Dutch experts will contribute to each Module, as shown in the program on page 3.
