In 2018, groundbreaking research continues to revolutionize treatment approaches and modalities across oncology disciplines. Within the diverse specialties of medical oncology, surgical oncology, and radiation oncology, a conference for clinicians who manage some of the most difficult-to-treat forms of gastrointestinal (GI) cancers is of particular value. The School of Gastrointestinal Oncology™ (SOGO®), a program focused exclusively on these tumors, takes the latest advances in research, and provides an educational venue that facilitates the practical application of new evidence to improve outcomes in your patients. This intensive 1-day, multi-track, curriculum-based, conference demonstrates how the latest data can be seamlessly incorporated into contemporary practice settings where patients with GI cancers receive care.

SOGO® prides itself on its multidisciplinary focus, featuring multiple break out tracks dedicated to medical oncology, surgical, oncology, and radiation oncology, as well as a nursing track. Attendees are brought together repeatedly throughout the day, allowing for a shared learning experience in sessions that aim to address your most difficult clinical scenarios. Now in its third year, our expert faculty will integrate the latest data on prognostic and predictive markers and how these data impact clinical decision-making on evolving treatment strategies into a case-based format. Our goal is your goal, to optimize outcomes for each one of your patients with GI cancers. See you in New York!

What you’ll learn at SOGO® 2018!

  • How disease pathology and actionable biomarkers inform clinical decision-making
  • Advances in surgery including new frontiers in minimally invasive techniques
  • The expanding role that molecularly targeted and immunotherapeutic approaches are playing in GI cancers treatment
  • Optimized sequencing strategies to personalize care for your patients
  • Contemporary use of multidisciplinary approaches to optimize patient outcomes in advanced forms of GI cancers

Learning Objectives
