Surgery is a defined specialty within the European Union of Medical Specialists. In Europe, there are still differences in training and expertise. The fundamental skills required to meet the requirements in each surgical oncology subspecialty must be coordinated. The European Society of Surgical Oncology, the European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology, the European Society of Medical Oncology, and experts in associated subspecialties all contributed to the development of the core curriculum. The present version reaffirms and modifies the fundamental curricular framework required for candidates who are vying now and in the future and who intend to prepare for and eventually take the European fellowship test for the European Board of Surgery in Surgical Oncology. The core curriculum will develop, mature, and adapt as evidence-based care for cancer patients changes as a result of basic science, translational research, and clinical trials research, delivering ongoing improvements in cancer outcomes for patients.
