Overview

Oncology II builds up on Oncology I and addresses some of the most common canine and feline tumours including haematopoietic neoplasms (e.g. lymphoma) and oral, gastrointestinal, pancreatic & hepatosplenic tumours. There will be a wet-lab microscopy session practicing blood smear and lymph node cytology. A major emphasis of the course will be again on understanding how to approach a patient with cancer. There will be lots of 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. 

Oncology I is mandatory before continuing on to the next courses. Oncology II and Oncology III can be taken in any order. Oncology IV can be taken only after completion of all Oncology modules.
