ESMO E-Learning and V-Learning

Watch E-Learning and V-Learning webcasts produced by leading oncology experts and take the CME test.

ESMO continually develops E-Learning and V-Learning modules covering a broad range of topics relevant for practising oncologists including:

  • Recent discoveries and their impact on current treatments for diverse tumour types
  • Oncology clinical case studies and conundrums
  • Guidance on implementation of the latest ESMO clinical practise guidelines and incorporation of recent clinical advancements
  • Selected oncology highlights from the past year

E-Learning and V-Learning modules less than 2 years are accompanied by a CME test (ESMO members only) awarding 1 ESMO-MORA category 1 point and 1 ACOE (Accreditation Council of Oncology in EU) CME credit on successful completion. ESMO members have the option to print the certificate immediately or store in the myESMO CME bank.

Modules marked as V-Learning contain video presentations to enhance your learning experience.
