      The Certificate of Competence and Advanced Studies Program is an academically recognized postgraduate program that is organized by the European School of Oncology in collaboration with the University of Ulm and the University of Zurich. It is a part-time educational activity that aims to provide physicians and scientists with advanced knowledge in the management of patients with breast cancer, lymphoma, and lung cancer. The program encloses three attendance seminars and four to five e-learning modules that extend over 12 to 14 months. To be certified, participants have to pass an online test after each module followed by a final certification exam at the end of the program. This article reports on the 8-year experience of the 166 graduated fellows who have attended the program.
