APOC 12 : Advanced Paediatric Oncology Course

The Advanced Paediatric Oncology Course (APOC) is a 5-day course taught by an international faculty of Paediatric Oncologists and Scientists.

Since its inception by Dr Jon Pritchard over 20 years ago, the Advanced Paediatric Oncology Course (APOC) has sought to integrate new and emerging knowledge into the advanced care of children and young people with cancer.

In 2022 APOC 12 will focus on understanding how the unique biology of childhood cancer is informing the development of novel approaches to cancer treatment, especially precision medicine, immunotherapy and targeted therapies. The lecture-based program is reinforced by facilitated discussion and clinical case presentations.
