This three-day course offers clinicians a collegial environment to discuss current issues in treating women with gynecologic cancers. Topics include the effects of obesity on treatment, use of supportive and palliative care, latest developments in translational science and a discussion on quality healthcare and how current legislation in the United States affects practice. A tumor board session will also take place where practitioners can apply knowledge directly to cases presented. This course is ideal for new and experienced physicians alike, as well as all members of the gynecologic cancer care team.
