There are now 42 months of mandatory rotations (compared to 36 previously) and there is greater emphasis on genomics and cancer in the elderly. This will also impact the structure of the SCE examination in medical oncology.

Further information can be found on the JRCPTB website. Issues regarding the impact of academic trainees to fulfil the new curriculum have been highlighted.
