Oncology Winter School
The students are taken through a challenging but highly stimulating learning program. They spend the first part of the day on the oncology wards, learning the daily routines, accompanying patients from reception through diagnostic procedures to therapy sessions. The afternoons are taken up with courses on the latest diagnostic methods or therapeutic approaches, and discussion of individual case studies. In addition, they work with actors on aspects of problem-oriented communication and receive invaluable help from their German "study buddies".
