Synopsis:

Randomized clinical trials (RCT’s) have been shown significant improvement in clinical outcome when hyperthermia was added to radiotherapy and/or chemotherapy. According to the standards set by the Society of Thermal Medicine (STM); European Society for Hyperthermic Oncology (ESHO) and the Asian Society of Hyperthermic Oncology (ASHO); the benefits of hyperthermia are fully realized when the tumor temperature reaches 39-43 degrees Celsius. The course aims to introduce the benefits of Hyperthermia in Cancer Treatment as well as to introduce the hardware and software equipment.

Requirements:

In the case of foreign lecturers, there will be a weeklong block of intensive contact education for the number of students at least five. If the number of students is less than five, the course will be self-study with consultations using VoIP (e.g. Skype) and a contact 1-or 2-day seminar. The contact seminar will take place at the FBMI or at the home institution of a foreign lecturer. The subjects are concluded by an oral examination. The student must elaborate a paper on a given topic together with the exam in case of the controlled self-study.

Two laboratory exercises are required for admission to the exam (attested by a protocol signed by the student, the tutor and the supervisor of the course).

The protocols will be archived in the Department for Doctoral Studies.
