ESMO examination trial questions

Welcome to the test !

Dear Colleagues,
in this section of the ESMO website you will find sample questions. They have been used in one of the previous years. If you study these questions, you will become familiar with the type of questions typically utilised in the ESMO examination. The ESMO Examination Working Group prepares new questions every year. The subjects cover all areas of clinical oncology. Oncologists practising evidence based medicine should easily pass this examination.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to the 2014 ESMO Exam.

Chair, ESMO Examination Working Group
