This intensive and active learning program where participants are divided into small groups with an allocated preceptor, who is a senior ALTG member with clinical expertise in lung cancer management. Participants are expected to make a short presentation of a selected clinical study deemed to be of high importance to clinical practice, to their peers with active discussion. Preceptors provide feedback and guidance before and during the 1.5-2 day session, which also involves discussion and application of clinical trial methodology leading to an interactive demonstration of how to design a trial addressing a clinical question agreed to by the participants.

The objectives of the program are:

  • to critically appraise and evaluate key evidence supporting the evolution of clinical practice of lung cancer diagnosis and management, in early and advanced settings, incorporating supportive care, modern treatments and technologies, including modern molecular technology and immune-profiling for selection of targeted therapies and immunotherapy.
  • to appreciate the importance of multidisciplinary team care
  • to appreciate the importance of clinical inquiry as the basis for clinical research
  • to appreciate the basics of clinical trial design
