Course 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. A major emphasis of the course will again be on understanding how to systematically approach a patient with cancer. There will be lots of interactive and case oriented work using a rational approach including recognizing symptoms, interpreting radiographic findings, choosing correct staging procedures and formulating a therapeutic plan.

Please note: for the online self-study of cytology cases (blood and lymph node cytology), you must bring your own laptop to the course.

Oncology I is mandatory before attending Oncology II, but Oncology II and Oncology III can be taken in any order. Oncology IV can be taken only after completion of all Oncology modules. Everyone can attend Feline Oncology, which is highly recommended to develop a thorough understanding of oncology in this species.
