About the Melbourne Cancer Course
The Melbourne Cancer Course is designed to supplement the RACP curriculum for adult examination candidates. This two day intensive on haematology and oncology is provided by Australia's leading Haematologists and Oncologists.
The course will provide the fundamentals of haematology and oncology and assist to explain the intricacies of these areas needed to pass the RACP written exam. The course will cover the major tumour streams including breast, lung, GI, melanoma and genitourinary; as well as acute and chronic leukemias, lymphoma and myeloma. The course will also simplify the fundamental concepts underlying both disciplines including immunotherapy, oncogenic pathways, drug mechanisms, cancer screening, genetics, bleeding and thrombosis.
The course has been designed by Dr James McCracken, Medical Oncology Fellow at the Olivia Newton John Cancer Research Institute at the Austin Hospital.
The Melbourne Cancer Course will be held at the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th September 2019.
