InspireMEdicine Conference – “A Whistlestop Tour of Cancer Care”

By January 25, 2016 No Comments

We hope you enjoyed the workshop at this year’s InspireMEdicine Conference, which was kindly hosted and conducted by Dr Kai-Keen Shiu from UCLH.

Oncology is a well balanced specialty requiring both scientific bent as well as good decision making and communication. The aim of the workshop was to provide everyone with a broad overview of the skills oncologists require and the cases they run into on a daily basis, and we hope it made you slightly more interested in a career in oncology!

Here are the slides for the workshop, kindly put together and provided by Dr Shiu:

Cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide, especially in the developed world. As a disease of aging and affluence, it is likely to grow in significance in the coming years, burdening healthcare services all around the world. Through organising a cornucopia of engaging events throughout the course of the academic year, our society hopes to inform students about this major disease, and inspire them to join in the war against cancer.
