We would like to draw your attention to the OncoVideo Project for education in cancer treatment:

Designed for professionals in oncology, OncoVideos is an online library of twenty four ACOE CME accredited videos showing standard procedures related to the various oncology disciplines. The videos are slide shows including filmed sessions of procedures. Each video lasts between 20 to 30 minutes.
Oncovideos are offered free of charge upon a simple registration process.
