Course for physicians

In person course

Scientific Writing in English for Thoracic and Neuro-oncology

The English language is omnipresent in the scientific context:
when submitting a research proposal, in discussions with peers and, last but not least, when publishing study results. Oncology journals require writing that is well-structured and convincing. Your manuscript must not only be in good English and error-free, but also logically structured, appealing to read and compliant with the journal’s instructions.

In this course, you will learn some of the most relevant principles
and techniques for publishing your findings in English-language
journals using examples of studies relating to TTFields such as the EF-14
1 and STELLAR2 trials publications. In addition, you will improve your communication and writing skills in a scientific environment. With these targeted and effective techniques, you will gain skills needed to write research-based texts that are clear, concise and easy to read, and successfully prepare research proposals in English.
