Institutions


European School of Oncology




The European School of Oncology (ESO) was founded by Umberto Veronesi and Laudomia Del Drago in 1982, with the aim of reducing the number of deaths from cancer due to late diagnosis and/or inadequate treatment.  ESO’s mission is reflected in its motto “Learning to Care”, which stresses the concept of studying and learning and also of caring for the patient in a global sense.  By improving the skills of all health professionals dealing with cancer patients, ESO shortens the length of time needed to transfer knowledge from research centres to daily practice, combining advanced technology with humanism in care.
‘Learning to Care’ is the motto of the School. ESO has always given great importance to the learning process. Since its attention is focused on the clinical aspects of the cancer problem, care is the ultimate goal of its commitment to improve the oncology skills of health professionals. Care and not only treatment is of paramount importance to ESO who believes in the holistic approach to the cancer patient.

ESO’s mission is a response to the demand from Western countries or developed countries where there is a constant increase in the request for education and oncology updates. These are the result of the progression in research into new therapies, technologies and new drugs. Meanwhile in developing countries there is an increase in the demand for oncology education deriving from the forecasted explosion of cancer. The fight against cancer is therefore becoming more and more global. The success which has been gained in the United States and Europe in disease control and which has consequently decreased mortality needs to be disseminated. ESO has faced the process of globalising the fight against cancer with diversity and speed - and in an active and resourceful way by dedicating resources and energy, expanding its work in new cultural areas, new geographical areas and new professional figures, developing and upgrading editorial activities in print and electronically, as well as in e-learning seminars.



Ulm University, Medical Faculty





The University of Ulm is chronologically the ninth university in Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany. The first ideas of founding a university in Ulm go back to the 50´s. In 1959, the research group "University of Ulm" was formed, which produced a memorandum to establish a university in March of 1961. In July of 1965, the foundation committee submitted its "Memorandum on a College of Medicine and Natural Sciences in Ulm," which was approved by the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg's council of ministers in January 1966. Just two months later, the "Interim Constitution of the Ulm College of Medicine and Natural Sciences" came into effect.

The Medical Faculty in co-operation with the University Hospital is responsible for the continuing medical education in a narrow sense leading to medical specialisation according to the Medical Association's professional code of conduct. The residencies are regulated by the Landesärztekammer of the State of Baden-Württemberg. Advanced training by the Medical Faculty in a broader sense also comprises academic qualification (dissertation, habilitation), didactical education of lecturers (didactics) and specialised as well as interdisciplinary training. One major focus of the Medical Faculty of the University of Ulm lies in its responsibility to foster lifelong learning of medical doctors, postgraduate scientists and health professionals on an interdisciplinary and international level.
