2020 Surgical Oncology Virtual Symposium

October 23, 2020

Multidisciplinary management of cancer is evolving, treatment algorithms are increasingly complex, involving care by surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists, and medical oncologists. 

This workshop will highlight the multidisciplinary approach and current national and international guidelines for these complex diseases, including guidelines that have been published within the past year, in an effort to further the discussion on optimal patient care and the importance of multidisciplinary, high-volume care. The intent is for clinicians attending to be able to better develop multidisciplinary programs at their own institutions.
