George D. Demetri, MD, Richard F. Riedel, MD, Sandra P. D’Angelo, MD, and Brian A. Van Tine, MD, PhD describe why they believe continuing medical education plays a crucial role in advancing patient care. Continuing medical education is critical to keep up with the evolving trends and rapid evolution of oncology. Medical education allows for key opinion leaders to teach community oncologists the proper way to apply masses of information in clinical practice. Therefore, oncologists will be able to provide patients with cancer the best care possible.
