Description

This 5-day fellowship is an in-depth review of head and neck cancer imaging focusing on staging and subsite tumor analysis including post-treatment, complications, and errors/pitfalls, utilizing lectures and abundant case material from a leading cancer center.

Participation in this fellowship, limited to a maximum of 8 radiologists, will enhance and strengthen your knowledge in head and neck image interpretation. In this small group environment among your peers, you are free to ask questions, make mistakes, and learn together with the support of the radiologist mentors.

The fellowship will run during working hours (approximately 9:00 to 5:00pm) so participants will be free to explore the beautiful city of Barcelona in the evenings and weekend should you choose to extend your stay.
