Program description

Cancer is one of the main causes of death in the Western world. Research into preventing, detecting and treating it is important. Oncology provides you with the training you need.

In our ageing society the number of cancer patients will continue to rise in the coming decades, since the incidence of the disease is higher among the elderly. Research into how cancer develops and the long-term effects of cancer treatment is therefore essential. Especially now that more people are living longer after being successfully treated. Cancer research is multidisciplinary and takes place within a global network. Researchers must be well equipped to function effectively in such a demanding environment. A Master's degree in Oncology enables you to work in the field of biomedical/oncological research at universities or other research institutes. For example the Netherlands Cancer Institute and pharmaceutical or biotech companies in the Netherlands or abroad. These organizations are in direct need of Master's students in Oncology. Most Oncology students (75%) continue their career by working for a doctorate (PhD). Other career prospects include further specialization in medical or clinical programmes.
