“I want to thank the organisers of the CECOG Summer School for the invitation and the warm welcome. I appreciated the attention of the participants and their contributions to our tumor board cases”

Prof. Dietmar Thurnher
“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.”

Prof. Wolfgang Eisterer
We had an interesting interactive session on head & neck tumors with active participation of the auditorium and a fruitful discussion on the presented cases. I enjoyed this year’s summer school and plan to attend next year.“
