Spreading and sharing knowledge is central to the mission of the Comprehensive Cancer Centres (CLCC) [Centres de Lutte Contre le Cancer]. The Eugène Marquis Centre trains many students and healthcare professionals.
It collaborates actively with the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Rennes I in the provision of university and postgraduate teaching for doctors and specialists in disciplines related to cancer.
Through its special relationship with the university, and through its close collaboration with the Faculty of Medicine and Rennes University Teaching Hospital, the Eugène Marquis Centre contributes actively to university and postgraduate education for doctors and specialists in disciplines related to cancer. All doctors at the Eugène Marquis Centre, whether academics or not, participate in university-level medical teaching.
Medical school students carry out internships in the departments, which gives them an opportunity to become more familiar with the disease, the therapies used and the treatments available for symptoms. It is also an opportunity to develop their bedside manner. They spend time in various departments: medical oncology, radiotherapy, surgery and medical imaging.
The Eugène Marquis Centre also provides training for junior doctors in oncology, radiotherapy, imaging, surgery, general medicine and pharmacy, in addition to assistant clinical consultants in the medical oncology and radiotherapy departments. In addition to practical training, the Centre’s doctors also participate in theoretical teaching at the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Rennes I.
University lecturers also participate in national-level teaching for post-graduate diplomas (Diplôme d’Etudes Spécialisées and Diplôme d’Etudes Spécialisées Complémentaires) in cancerology and surgery, among other subjects, as well as other national and international teaching opportunities.
