This Master course will start in March 2017 with nearly 3 months of daily lessons which will be held in Milan, Italy, on the general issues of rare cancers and all the 10 families of rare adult solid cancers. Each participant will then spend 6 months choosing amongst 1 to 6 cancer institutions (in Amsterdam, Lyon, London, Leuven, Milan, Paris-Villejuif, Pisa, Torino, Zurich) where he/she will be able to train on the same cancers (thus with clinical training periods lasting from 1 to 6 months each, selected by the attendees depending on the rare cancers he/she wants to specialise in).

The subject will be the practice of clinical oncology pertaining to all the 10 “families” of rare cancers:

  • sarcomas
  • head & neck cancers
  • mesothelioma & thymoma
  • CNS tumors
  • neuroendocrine tumors
  • endocrine tumors
  • rare gynecologic cancers
  • rare digestive cancers
  • rare urogenital cancers
  • rare skin cancers and non-cutaneous melanoma
