Beschreibung des Angebots
Cutting-edge technologies, like next-generation-sequencing (NGS), combined with the development of targeted therapies are now revolutionizing clinical practice, bringing new complexity to the field of oncology. The CAS in Personalized Molecular Oncology aims at providing a comprehensive and integrative view of the field, by covering all the aspects involved along the pipeline: (i) tumor biology and genetics, (ii) molecular pathology, (iii) clinical bioinformatics, and (iv) clinical oncology.
First of its kind in Switzerland, it will focus on the methodologies used to generate, analyze and interpret patients’ molecular profiles, also touching upon the associated technical, regulatory and ethical challenges. As an important outcome, it will establish a common language between the wide range of professionals involved in the personalized oncology process, from biologists, bioinformaticians, pathologists to clinicians, enabling an efficient and better informed use of e.g. genomic data for both routine clinical practice and clinical research. Moreover, it should empower professionals to develop a vision for their own institution, by critically evaluating the potential benefits and limitations of current and future developments in personalized oncology.
The CAS is organized jointly by the University Hospital of Basel, the University Hospital of Lausanne, and the SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics.
Aufbau der Ausbildung
The program consists of 4 modules of 4 days each (on-site presential teaching in Basel and Lausanne). Each module is interactive, with lectures alternating with hands-on sessions, group discussions, on-site lab visits, in addition to home readings and assignments. Please refer to the brochure for detailed module content.
Acquired competencies will be evaluated with an exam at the end of each module. In addition, students will need to complete a mini-thesis on a study case in small multi-disciplinary groups. Altogether, completion of the program is awarded 10 ECTS.
Participants interested in attending only one module are also welcome, and will receive a short course certificate with 2 ECTS, provided they pass the exam at the end of the module.
The CAS targets an interdisciplinary audience of professionals involved in personalized molecular oncology, including laboratory managers, biologists, bioinformaticians, pathologists, geneticists, clinicians and pharmaceutical company employees.
Applicants are expected to hold a university degree (MSc or MD degree), and will be selected on the basis of their CV and demonstrated interest or experience in personalized oncology.
The course will be taught entirely in English, and homework assignments should be completed in English as well. Hence, a good command of both oral and written English is necessary to attend the CAS.
Fee for attending the whole CAS: CHF 6’000.-
Fee for attending a single module: CHF 2’000.-
