in this section of the ESMO website you will find sample questions that have been used in the two last editions of the ESMO Academy. 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 ESMO Examination.
