11th Annual School of Breast Oncology
11th Annual School of Breast Oncology®
Over the past decade, an increasing number of oncologists have concentrated their practices on breast cancer. In order to advance patient care, the School of Breast Oncology®
was developed. This curriculum-based program focuses exclusively on breast cancer clinical management. The intensive 4-day interactive program will provide a comprehensive review of data on the most important aspects of breast cancer biology, diagnostics, prevention and treatment. The curriculum will be evidence based summarizing the existing data for each topic and applying these data to patient cases.
This educational program is directed toward medical, radiation, and surgical oncologists whose primary practice focus is breast cancer and who intend to reinforce their knowledge base and expand their expertise in breast cancer diagnosis, treatment, and management. Participants will be primarily oncologists 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 breast cancer.
