About this program

Medical Sciences Summer School: Oncology

The Medical University of Vienna and the University of Groningen/ University Medical Center Groningen collaborate in the organisation of the annualMedical Sciences Summer School Oncology for Medical Students. The Summer School is organized alternatingly in Groningen (even years) and Vienna (odd years). This July the school will take place in Groningen!

The goal of the Summer Schools is to teach a multidisciplinary approach to oncology to medical students before they enter the clinic. The first Summer School in Groningen was held in 1996 and in Vienna in 1999. Students that participated in the Summer schools have been extremely satisfied with the organisation, scientific content and topic range.
