The 5th Annual Brain Tumor Symposium - The New Revolution in Neuro-Oncology: Molecular Diagnoses and Targeted Treatments offers participants a unique opportunity to hear expert clinician leaders relate their knowledge of the field of neuro-oncology and current state-of-the-art advances.  Cases will be examined from multiple perspectives, providing participants with clinical pearls for diagnosing and managing malignant brain tumors to improve patient outcomes. 

The course will feature:

  • Morning lectures devoted to the theme of the symposium: new research initiatives that highlight the dramatic advances in both diagnosis and treatment of malignant brain tumors
  • Afternoon, profession-specific break-out sessions, providing additional opportunities for focused discussions and interactions.

Each session will be designed to give practitioners updates in the latest trends and advances in neuro-oncology and learning will be reinforced through lively interactive case-based discussion.  Lectures will also provide practitioners with updates in ongoing clinical trials at Jefferson as well as current outpatient brain tumor management.
