This is the third edition of the Musculoskeletal Oncology Course of the University of Padova. It has been organized by the Department of Orthopedics and Orthopedic Oncology of the University of Padova in close cooperation with the other Universities of the International Faculty. Based on a few years experience of some faculty members with other Oncology Courses, such as the Moffitt Cancer Center Course, the Rizzoli Course, the Oxford Course and the European Course of Budapest Semmelweis University, our Course is aimed to offer a review and update of the knowledge in musculoskeletal oncology and more specifically to provide basic information on clinical features, imaging, pathology and principles of treatment of the bone and soft tissues tumors and pseudotumoral lesions. It is a short but comprehensive Course, addressed to residents and young doctors (orthopedic surgeons, radiologists, pathologist and medical oncologists) who are wishing to start their activity or are already involved in the field of musculoskeletal oncology, in order to refresh or widen their knowledge. This Course is designed to be fairly interactive, with wide space dedicated to case discussion and questions. Our faculty includes very prestigious names in musculoskeletal oncology, with different specialties represented: orthopedic surgery of course, as well as pathology, radiology and medical oncology. We hope that this Course will be both useful and pleasant for all participants.

The Course Directors: Pietro Ruggieri, Douglas Letson & Sander Dijkstra
