In keeping with Jefferson's integrated approach to education and care, this Symposium is organized through the collaborative efforts of:
Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson,
Jefferson - National Jewish Health Jane & Leonard Korman Respiratory Institute
Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University.
The 6th Annual Lung Cancer Symposium is specifically designed for specialists whose practice focuses on the screening, diagnosis, management, and treatment of lung cancer utilizing a multi-disciplinary approach.
Participants will examine case presentations from multiple perspectives, and gain in-depth understanding to how experienced healthcare providers approach difficult patient care decisions. The program will also emphasize updated approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer and will reinforce best practices through lively interactive case-based presentations, providing the opportunity for in-depth discussions on how the information presented at the conference can impact participant competency and their patient care processes, and allowing for a significant opportunity for audience members to interact with program faculty and discussants.
Attendees will participate in a "mock tumor board" as a multi-disciplinary panel interacts. Experts in the fields of Surgery, Oncology, and Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine will review and analyze cases drawn from practice and develop management strategies to optimize patient care.
