If you previously attended and received credit for the live CME/CE-certified conference, 14th Annual School of Breast Oncology®, which was held November 3-5, 2016, in Atlanta, please note that you will not receive credit for completing this activity. Participants who take part in an identical activity, even in order to validate learning or to clarify specific topics, cannot claim, nor will Physicians’ Education Resource®, LLC (PER®), award, duplicate credit for the activity.
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. Not only does the School of Breast Oncology® provide a comprehensive overview for fellows or oncologists who are new to practice, it 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. This online activity captures all of the lectures presented at the live 2016 School of Breast Oncology®, organizes them in a convenient modular format, and summarizes the existing data for each topic with an emphasis on the evidence-based foundations for optimal, individualized decision making in the clinic.
Instructions for Receiving Credit
In order to receive a CME/CE certificate, participants must complete the pretest, view any number of the 10 slide modules, and complete the posttest (with a passing score of 70% or higher), evaluation, and request for credit.

This educational program is directed toward medical oncologists, fellows, surgical oncologists, and radiation oncologists who treat patients with breast cancer.
