Hundreds of students over the years have successfully improved their skills and knowledge thanks to the clinical trial workshops.

What the participants said:

Bryan A Chan, Canada
Medical Oncology

The MCCR workshop can be described as intense, but also very rewarding! I have greatly improved my knowledge and confidence with respect to clinical trial design, statistics and of course the numerous considerations that go into a well-designed protocol.

The MCCR workshop has genuinely been the most beneficial learning experience I have had during my time in training as a medical oncologist. The environment was incredibly positive, and the faculty members could not have been more approachable and inspiring.

Konstantinos Leventakos, USA
Medical Oncology

This workshop is the most efficient way to get deeper insight about the development of clinical trials and learn from the real life experts of clinical research.  I cannot imagine of a better way that my protocol on metronomic chemotherapy and immune checkpoint inhibitors could have more productive guidance.

Mette van Ramshorst, Netherlands
Medical Oncology

Notwithstanding high expectations, set by the experiences of others, the real experience was even better than I could have hoped for. The extensive experience in oncology research, the excellent teaching skills, as well as the overwhelming enthusiasm of the faculty members present at this workshop is a winning combination.

Marie Tzschaschel, Germany
Medical Oncology

The MCCR Workshop was probably the most intense workshop or course I ever participated in.  By discussing the proposals with the faculty members and the other students I started realising which issues I had not thought about before and that I would need to work hard to actually turn my idea into a feasible protocol. However, I felt I was well supported by the faculty who shared their enormous knowledge and experience.

Louise Carter, United Kingdom
Medical Oncology

I did leave the workshop with a finished protocol, somewhat different to the one I initially thought I would write but infinitely better.  I also left the week with improved knowledge of designing trials and advice that will be useful throughout my entire career.

Kamil Zalewski, Poland
Gynaecologic Oncology

I had a unique opportunity to meet and cooperate with a wonderfully diversified group of young researchers focused on different fields of oncology; it was really inspiring and motivating. I would definitely highly recommend the Workshop to well-trained clinical scientists that are interested in improving their training in clinical and translational trial designs.

Eduardo Castanon Alvarez, France
Medical Oncology

It is challenging as an oncologist to try to develop your own ideas and to make it real. Thanks to the MCCR Workshop, I found that it is so important to have a real and professional network, in which the patient should be the cornerstone. Thanks to all the work done at Zeist, my protocol has been accepted and it will be sponsored!

Nuria Mulet Margalef, Spain
Medical Oncology

As a fellow, I really appreciate attending such high-level daily lectures and also being a part of a small “protocol development group” in which the discussions based on scientific criteria are the basis. Methods in Clinical Cancer Research is the best Workshop that I have ever attended.

Angela Orcurto, Switzerland
Medical Oncology

This workshop was not only a great opportunity to learn the most important features of clinical trials, but also a unique chance to meet and discuss with experienced faculties as well as other fellows from all over the world. I enthusiastically recommend this workshop to anyone interested in clinical cancer research, and would advise to attend early enough in training in order to start with a solid base.

Noam Fabel Pondé, Belgium
Medical Oncology

Having only recently entered the field of clinical research, I went into MCCR with very little concept of what would happen there. Having gone through it, I am sure it will constitute one of the main formative experiences of my scientific career.

This workshop has represented a big step forward in my career as it will certainly facilitate me to achieve the goal of becoming an academic medical oncology researcher.

Eva Madsen, Netherlands
Surgical Oncology

What I did not expect, but was actually quite nice was that there were not many other surgical oncologists and this sometimes forced me to really see things from another angle, which gave me different perspectives on parts of my protocol and on protocols from others as well.

Kim Aalders, Belgium
Surgical Oncology

It is definitely an intensive week which requires preparation and motivation but this is very much worth it. As a beginner in the field of cancer research I got motivated even more and I will take the lessons learned with me for the rest of my career.

Ahmed Salem, United Kingdom
Clinical Oncology 

I was ecstatic when I found out that I was among the lucky 80 selected to attend the workshop. I left with a finalised trial protocol, greater resolve to continue the fight against cancer and newly-acquired, hopefully long-term, professional and personal relationships.

Linda Mahjoubi, France
Medical Oncology

The MCCR Workshop event is an intensive program worth the try, to successfully accomplish the objective of writing a complete protocol while improving knowledge on methodological aspects of clinical cancer trials enabling to enhance the quality of the design.  It is the best experience in the career of a young oncologist to learn how to write a well-conducted clinical trial, with fantastic networking.

Elke Pfaff, Germany
Paediatric Oncology

All in all, the workshop was an excellent and unique as well as very challenging opportunity to learn more about clinical trial design in oncology. The experience and knowledge I gained during the course will not only help me substantially to implement the trial I worked on in Zeist, but will also be valuable for my future work in the field of oncology.
