This is a unique opportunity for students to present their poster on cancer research to fellow students and oncology registrars and consultants and compete for prizes, whether you are from Cambridge or from a different university. Preclinical and non-medical oncology research students are welcome to submit too.
Please submit by Sunday, 27th January, 5PM: https://goo.gl/forms/M1lyPfSo8gqFbPmf1

Stay tuned for our release of workshop details. We are working to make a radiotherapy simulation; model multi-disciplinary team meeting (MDT) with interactive roles for students, led by consultants; discussion of interesting oncology cases; and other activities happen!

We ask for a small contribution of £5.00 (much cheaper than most clinical student conferences in Cambridge!), so we can finance a personalised OncSoc lanyard for you. We would also like some commitment to the ticket so that the food we provide and the printed lanyard + nametag do not go to waste.
If you have any questions, please email [email protected]
