Each block covers EBM skills, patient communication, and disease-specific knowledge: Pathology, Drug Therapy, Radiation Therapy, Surgery, and Diagnosis. Classes can take different forms: journal clubs, interactive lectures, case presentations, discussions, seminar sessions, etc.
The first semester focuses on evidence-based medicine (EBM), patient communication, basics of the pathology service, basic concepts of radiation therapy, nutrition support, palliative care, and oncology emergencies.

The remaining semesters include blocks devoted to specific nosologies, such as breast or colorectal cancer for solid oncologists or Hodgkin's and Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma for hematologists.

Residents study most nosologies because we are training surgical oncologists, medical oncologists and hematologists to be experts in their chosen field at the end of the program or at the start.
