Preceptorship in Lung Cancer

At the ALTG’s inaugural Preceptorship in Lung Cancer, 49 advanced trainees and junior consultants were given the opportunity to review, present and discuss the latest developments in lung cancer treatment over a two day intensive learning course.

In April 2015 the ALTG hosted the inaugural Preceptorship in Lung Cancer in Sydney, convened by Eva Segelov and facilitated by Nick Pavlakis, Shane White, Prunella Blinman, Chris Karapetis, Stephen Clarke and Michael Millward. This two day intensive learning course for advanced trainees and junior consultants in Medical, Radiation and Surgical Oncology offered participants the chance to actively learn in small groups, utilising the Harvard short course model across a range of key topics in thoracic cancer:

  • Basic biology and translational science of lung cancer and current therapies
  • Seminal papers in adjuvant therapy of lung cancer
  • Seminal papers in therapy of metastatic lung cancer
  • Treatment paradigms for metastatic lung cancer
  • Treatment pathways involving lung resection to achieve cure

Feedback from participants was overwhelmingly positive and we are currently planning the 2016 programme.
