MiniMD in Breast Cancer
16-27 September 2013
MiniMD is an exciting new two-week intensive course for non-clinical scientists, allowing them to obtain direct insight into the clinical pathway in cancer through meeting patients, seeing how clinical pathways operate and talking to clinicians caring for cancer patients. The emphasis throughout the course is on first-hand experience with access to unique clinical facilities and opportunities.
The first session of MiniMD will be focused on breast cancer but will be relevant to scientists working on any aspect of solid tumour biology, and particularly relevant for those working in translational research.
Participants on MiniMD in Breast Cancer will gain first hand clinically supervised experience of:
• Multidisciplinary Team meetings
• Clinical diagnostics (including pathology and radiology)
• Out-patient clinics
• Operating theatre sessions
• Ward rounds
• Radiotherapy and chemotherapy units
• Clinical Research Facilities
• Palliative and end of life care
This structured intensive two-week programme will be supervised by clinicians from across UCL Partners and the UCL/UCLH Biomedical Research Centre. Participating clinicians include:
|Dr Rebecca Roylance||Pathway Director, and Clinical Senior Lecturer, Queen Mary University of London|
|Muhammed Al-Dubaisi||Consultant Breast and General Surgeon, Barnet Hospitals|
|Dr Ros Crooks||Clinical Director, Diagnostics, The Whittington Hospital|
