The three usp’s of this course are:

- Lectures and practical training
- Discussions in multidisciplinary setting
- To practice with and experience the benefit of a multidisciplinary approach to bone lesions
- To increase knowledge of the diagnostic criteria of a variety of primary bone tumours and tumour-like lesions
- To understand the genetic background and the role of molecular diagnostics in the diagnosis of bone tumours
This course aims at the practical multidisciplinary approach to diagnose tumours of bones and joints, which can also be encountered outside specialized centers. The course deals with a systematic approach of groups of frequently occurring tumours and tumour-like lesions. The emphasis is multidisciplinary and focuses on the interaction between pathologists, radiologists, clinical scientists in pathology (KMBP) and orthopaedic surgeons, which is crucial to come to an adequate diagnosis. The faculty is composed of pathologists, radiologists, clinical scientists in pathology (KMBP) and orthopedic surgeons.
The course is meant for (trainee) pathologists, radiologists, orthopaedic surgeons, clinical oncologists and paediatricians.
