Representing and supporting medical oncologists in the UK

ACP Teaching Webinars

The ACP holds a series of monthly webinars, aimed primarily at trainees and clinical research fellows in medical oncology, however all ACP members are welcome to join.  The webinars are recorded and are available to ACP members following the event.



The webinars are sponsored by Eisai Ltd. and Roche Products Ltd., who have had no input into the programme or influence on the agendas or speakers

Webinars are usually scheduled for the third Tuesday of each month, starting in October 2020, and held on Zoom from 6-7.30pm.  

The recordings for the webinars are available in the ACP online library, published by EBN Health. This publication platform also includes the multi-award-winning Problem Solving in Oncology series of titles and is a great educational resource, available free of charge to all ACP members.  Full details, including how to register, here.
