MCCR Workshop 2020
MCCR: A Unique Opportunity for the Next Generation of Cancer Clinical Research Experts
The 22nd MCCR Workshop – 2020 EORTC-ESMO-AACR Workshop on Methods in Clinical Cancer Research will take place on 26 June - 2 July 2020 in Sint-Michielsgestel, The Netherlands. Application submissions are now open!
The EORTC-ESMO-AACR Workshop on Methods in Clinical Cancer Research is an educational programme that introduces junior clinical oncologists in any oncology subspecialty to the principles of good clinical trial design.
Since 1999, this well-recognised and CME accredited Workshop progressed with each subsequent edition to reinforce its value.
Workshop participants' core activity is to develop their initial protocol proposal into a complete protocol: in small groups, they receive an extensive feedback on their trial concepts and complete the writing of their protocol by applying the knowledge acquired during the course. The added value of MCCR is its 1-week-long "full immersion" format and its world-renowned faculty of highly experienced clinical experts in the field of oncology. During this week, they provide their advice on protocol development and career mentoring to course participants during one-to-one sessions, small group discussions, lectures and panel discussions. The workshop also gives attendees the opportunity to build professional relationships with an elite group of peers from all over the world. Please find here a full programme overview for MCCR 2020.
Access to this exclusive workshop is highly competitive, but the 80 successful applicants live a very rewarding experience which will help them in their career. Stefan Sleijfer, one of the Workshop Directors, concludes “Having attended the workshop several times as a faculty member, I noticed that everyone experiences this course as I did as a student in 2004. This is a once in a lifetime experience where you will learn how to perform clinical research in a unique environment with highly motivated students and top clinical researchers”.
