4th Annual International Congress on Oncology & Pathology™: Towards Harmonization of Pathology and Oncology Standards

June 20, 2020


The 4th Annual International Congress on Oncology & Pathology™: Towards Harmonization of Pathology and Oncology Standards will provide the latest information on key topics in malignancy assessment that can be readily applied to the management of your patients. From academic centers and community practices alike, pathologists and oncologists will come together to facilitate awareness of recent advancements in diagnostic approaches and the impact that these advancements may have on treatment selection and, ultimately, your patient outcomes. Leading experts will address critical topics in pathology screening for malignancies commonly encountered in clinical practice. From a foundation of tumor-specific discussions, our clinical faculty will appraise clinical guidelines, explore new concepts and clinical research, and discuss ways for you to optimize techniques for and leverage the knowledge from molecular pathology and cellular pathology investigation. This will be a dynamic experience, providing you with the opportunity to engage with faculty as they share their perspectives and personal experiences with clinical challenges in the field of pathology. A variety of formats will be used to generate an exciting learning environment, including cutting-edge lectures, panel discussions, multidisciplinary tumor boards, and interactive question-and-answer sessions.
