PEMM 132 Clinical Management of Cancer

This course will expose non-clinical researchers to the clinical realities of managing cancer through classroom lectures, tumor board case review sessions, and observation of everyday oncology clinic experiences. Students will gain insight into the issues associated with the clinical management of diverse cancer subtypes; an understanding of the complexities involved in treating people/patients, not just the cancer, including consideration and management of the side effects of therapy; and exposure to translational and clinical approaches to cancer research. The format will be a one-hour lecture each week by a practicing clinician, attendance at 5 one-hour tumor board sessions, and 5 half-days of observation in oncology clinics. Students must be in third year or later in a Geisel PhD program (or receive permission for exception from Course Director).
