Oncology II, Luxembourg, 29 June - 3 July 2016 held

Course Master: Dr. Jarno Schmidt MRCVS, DECVIM-CA (DE)
Co-Lecturers: Dr. Martin Kessler DECVIM-CA (DE); Dr. Laurent Findji, DECVS (UK)


OVERVIEW

Over the past decade, our knowledge of cancer in animals has increased rapidly. More and more veterinarians and clients are becoming open-minded about treating canine and feline cancer patients. Oncology I (2015) was an introduction into the world of veterinary oncology with a focus on cutaneous neoplasms.

In 2016 “Oncology II” builds up on that seminar introducing more advanced concepts in oncology and addressing a variety of tumours. Again, a major emphasis of the course will be on interactive and case oriented work using a systematic approach to the cancer patient including recognizing symptoms, interpreting radiographic findings, choosing correct staging procedures and formulating a therapeutic plan.
