Tumorzentrum Freiburg - CCCF


School of Oncology (SoO)
Training in Translational Oncology for Physicians and Scientists

Physicians and scientists traditionally follow two separate qualification paths, but in translational research they work side by side. The German Cancer Consortium, DKTK has created the first opportunity in Germany for people of both disciplines to specialize in translational oncology. The School of Oncology gives scientists and physicians at the start of their careers the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the requirements of clinical trials, approval processes and the concept of networked, multicenter, interdisciplinary research.


  • Exchange of medical and clinician scientists.
  • Establishment of structured training in translational cancer research.
  • Establishment of an interactive nationwide network in DKTK.
  • Support of your scientific career development.

Target Audience

Clinician Scientists and Medical Scientists (up to 6 years after obtaining an academic degree).

If you are interested to join DKTK SoO Freiburg, please contact us. Enrollment in the SoO program is ongoing possible.


Fellowship Period

A SoO fellowship lasts for a maximum of 3 years, independent from the achievement/conclusion of a DKTK SoO certificate. Extension of time is possible in case of maternity leave or temporary stay abroad.
