Program Overview

Over the past decade or so, tremendous progress in the treatment of genitourinary (GU) cancers has led to improved outcomes for patients, but has also made clinical management of these malignancies more complex. We are excited to announce the 1st Annual European Congress on Genitourinary Cancers™, a comprehensive educational conference designed to help practitioners place emerging information into the context of landmark clinical trial data and established standards of care, ultimately improving the care they provide to their patients with GU cancers.

This practical and interactive multiday program features a faculty of leading international experts who will provide up-to-date information and guidance via didactic lectures, question-and-answer sessions, and extended interactive case-based panel discussions. This format will enable participants to engage the faculty in a direct exchange of perspectives, personal experiences, and strategies related to clinical challenges in the management of GU cancers. In addition to focusing on key clinical topics and controversies, the program will include an exploration of emerging data on various therapeutic combinations and sequences undergoing clinical trial evaluation.

This meeting is not to be missed! The activity is sure to continue the legacy and tradition of Physicians’ Education Resource®, LLC, in providing clinicians with the knowledge and confidence to maintain state-of-the-art care and to optimize outcomes for patients with cancer.
