29th International Prostate Cancer Update (IPCU29)

Beaver Creek, CO US
January 24, 2019 to January 27, 2019

The International Prostate Cancer Update conference is a multi-day CME conference focused on prostate cancer treatment updates with expert international faculty. In January 2019, IPCU 29 will continue this tradition of nearly three decades by featuring short expert lectures, interactive audience response technology, panel and roundtable discussions, point-counterpoint debates, and presentation and review of difficult case reports. This well-regarded conference is led by more than two dozen expert faculty, and it is designed for urologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and other healthcare professionals involved in the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer.

The goal of this educational program is to equip healthcare professionals involved in the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer with up-to-date clinical knowledge and previews of upcoming research and technologies, and to provide them the tools they will need to best treat their patients with prostate cancer. The IPCU 29 program will discuss the spectrum of treating prostate cancer from initial diagnosis to treating advanced and metastatic disease. Our educational design aims to give physicians exposure to a comprehensive review of a wide range of methods for treating prostate cancer patients, to provide them with the opportunity to discuss the issues with peers and experts, and enable them to apply what they learn to their individual practices.

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of the Medical College of Wisconsin and Carden Jennings Publishing. The Medical College of Wisconsin is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
