This two-day course is designed for healthcare professionals whose practices focus on the screening, diagnosis, management, and treatment of lung cancer using a multidisciplinary approach. This symposium is led by experts in the fields of Medical and Radiation Oncology, Surgery, Population Health, and Pulmonary Medicine.

Day one highlights advances in lung cancer screening and a health equity perspective to screening services. Day one concludes with a discussion of surgical approaches and immunotherapy for the practicing physician. Day two starts off with a scholarly discourse of oligometastases in lung cancer and MRI-Guided radiation. Day two will also engage you in lively, interactive case-based discussions, a mock tumor board, and critical deliberations on the state of current knowledge, clinical approaches, differential diagnoses, and management options for lung cancer.
