Care for patients with solid tumors, hematologic malignancies, and benign hematologic disorders continues to evolve with the development of novel therapeutic agents and testing modalities, accumulation of clinical trial data, and ongoing revisions to expert guidelines.

Oncologists, hematologists, and other clinicians who participate in the care of patients with these disorders are challenged to stay current on the latest diagnosis, treatment, and management advances.

Cancer Medicine and Hematology is an intensive six-day course provides a comprehensive review of the clinical, molecular, and pathophysiologic basis for the diagnosis and treatment of neoplastic diseases and benign hematologic conditions.

Primary emphasis will be placed upon the broad area of medical management within a multidisciplinary environment. Recent advances in molecular genetics, clinical pharmacology, epidemiology, and supportive care will be stressed.

This course will engage participants in lectures using an audience response system as well as interactive panels and case discussions.

  • Incorporate new therapies and emerging management strategies into current multimodal treatment regimens for patients with gastrointestinal cancers, including hereditary cancers
  • Select individualized treatment approaches for patients with gynecologic cancers that consider recent clinical data on the role of molecular characteristics of these tumors
  • Use molecular and histopathologic characteristics to select appropriate systemic therapies for patients with head, neck, and lung cancers
