9th Annual Brain Tumor Symposium:

Maintaining Excellence in the COVID-19 Pandemic Era

Join us as we review the latest scientific evidence for emerging brain tumor treatments, patient guidelines, and current neuro-oncologic therapies to incorporate into clinical practice to meet the needs of the diverse patient population. The morning keynote presentations will be devoted to the theme of the symposium: maintaining excellence in patient care in the COVID-19 pandemic era.

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! The program will split into two tracks, tailoring information for physicians and nurses/other health professionals. 

This course is designed for all specialists working in the field of neuro-oncology: neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuro-oncologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, advanced care providers, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, hospitalists, oncology social workers, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals.

In keeping with Jefferson’s integrated approach to education and care, this Symposium is organized through the collaborative efforts of Jefferson’s Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center, the Vickie and Jack Farber Institute for Neuroscience and Thomas Jefferson University.
