12th Annual School of Breast Oncology®

12th Annual School of Breast Oncology®


An increasing number of oncologists are focusing their clinical practices on the treatment of breast cancer, creating a need for specialized education. The School of Breast Oncology®, which has been held annually since 2003, was developed to advance patient care by providing a curriculum-based program focused exclusively on breast cancer clinical management. This intensive 3-day interactive program will provide a comprehensive review of data on the most important aspects of breast cancer biology, diagnostics, prevention and treatment, with lectures emphasizing clinical implications presented by leading clinical investigators. The School of Breast Oncology® not only provides a comprehensive overview for fellows or oncologists who are new to practice, but also serves as a valuable refresher course with updates on the latest data and changes to standards of care for the oncologist who has been in practice for several years or more.

Target Audience

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.
