There is a need for specialized education for clinicians who manage some of the most difficult-to-treat forms of gastrointestinal cancers. The School of Gastrointestinal Oncology™ (SOGO™) will provide a multi-track curriculum-based program focused exclusively on gastrointestinal tumors’ management. This intensive 1-day interactive program will provide a comprehensive review of data on the most important aspects related to the multidisciplinary management of gastrointestinal tumors. The program will focus on the latest data on prognostic and predictive markers that impact clinical decision-making, current and emerging treatment strategies, and case-based lectures by expert faculty whose will focus on the practical application of knowledge to the complex care scenarios encountered in contemporary practice settings.
This educational program is directed toward oncologists and gastroenterologists whose primary practice focus is GI cancers, and who intend to reinforce their knowledge base and expand their expertise in GI diagnosis, risk stratification, personalization of care, and best practices for multidisciplinary communication. Participants will be primarily oncologists, gastroenterologists, or fellows in training whose practice requires mastery and a critical understanding of the fundamental principles, pivotal published studies, and emerging information on the pathogenesis and management of GI cancers.
