Based upon the success and the many positive reactions from participants in the first Summer School in Oncology (Bucharest, 1 – 5 July 2013), the Organizing Committee decided to continue with this concept in the year 2014.
This year’s Summer School in Oncology on the subject
“Updated Oncology 2014: State of the Art News and Challenging Topics”
was held from 16 – 20 June 2014 in Bucharest.
The Medical University of Vienna International (MUVI) Academy, the Federation of Romanian Cancer Foundation, Gral and CECOG – in its function as Organizing Committee – brought again together an academically and medically high ranking international faculty with a selected group of oncologists to be educated in state of the art topics in oncology.
This course presented the approaches to various malignancies on an interdisciplinary basis, focusing on diagnostics, surgery, medical oncology, radiotherapy etc. led by a group of well-respected experts.
A detailed schedule of all the courses held can be found here.

“The Update Oncology 2014 – Summer School Bucharest is a true multidisciplinary event, encompassing all relevant disciplines. I had the impression that the learning experience for the attendees from the lectures and, especially from the case discussions in a “ tumorboard-setting”, was very gratifying. Congratulations to the organizers of this course!”
Prof. Walter Klepetko
“The Bucarest Summer School for Oncology has taken place this year for the second time. Again, it has given the opportunity to obtain up to date information to a large group of interested Romanian residents and consultants. The session on management of advanced lung cancer was a particularly interactive one with interesting and outstanding discussions.”
