MiniMD Cancer

 16-27 June 2014

Mini MD

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 course will focus 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.

All sessions and travel between UCL Partners sites will be organised as part of the course.

The course is suitable for non-clinical scientists with varying degrees of experience, from postdoctoral trainees to early career and senior academics.
