Recommendations for a Global Curriculum in Medical Oncology
The Recommendations for a Global Curriculum in Medical Oncology are a set of common guidelines with a global perspective for the clinical training required for physicians to qualify as medical oncologist.
The ESMO-ASCO Global Core Curriculum Task Force outlined the curriculum with the goal of defining standards that will guide the training of medical oncologists worldwide and ensure that all patients have an equal chance of receiving treatment from well-trained physicians.
The first edition of the Curriculum was published in 2004 and distributed worldwide to universities, training hospitals, and medical oncology societies. It has been published in 11 different languages and used as a model for development of the speciality of medical oncology in several countries around the world.
The second edition of the Curriculum was published in 2010, and is based on contributions from esteemed colleagues around the world and shaped to a significant degree by the rapid advances in the management of patients with malignant diseases in the short time since the first edition was produced.
