Advances in Cancer Management for the SurgeonDate: 11/09/2011 - 11/10/2011
The objective of this course is to present surgeons with recent advances in cancer management in a manner that allows them to use the information in their surgical practices. This course covers the most relevant and recent information regarding diagnosis and staging, surgical techniques, avoidance and management of complications, and adjuvant therapies, with an emphasis on gastrointestinal malignancies, breast cancer, hepatobiliary malignancies, endocrine neoplasms, and melanoma. The criteria for selecting faculty are clinical expertise and teaching efficacy, based on feedback from participants. The course has been structured to provide more time for participants to interact with faculty through discussion involving each of these areas, presentation of interesting cases, panel interactions, and surgical technique workshops. New this year, we have increased the popular hands-on surgical technique workshops offered to six, allowing course attendees to participate in four separate workshops. These sessions will teach participants how to integrate the most current surgical oncology concepts into clinical practice. We will also include more intra-operative video to compliment the lecture material. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to participate in a Community Tumor Board with case presentations being drawn directly from the audience.
