Tumor Board Submissions
We invite you to take advantage of a unique opportunity and be a presenter at our Oncology Board Sessions held on Monday February 1st and Wednesday February 3rd!
Participants are encouraged to submit a case that presents a diagnostic and/or therapeutic challenge in the management of endocrine tumors and/or cancers (thyroid, neuroendocrine) to a panel of experts. Our experts represent the fields of Endocrinology, Surgery, Pathology and Oncology. Our panelists will share their expertise and unique insights about your case. We are confident this session will be a great learning opportunity for all. Cases can represent a broad range of common and/or uncommon endocrine tumors, such as cytology of thyroid nodules or questions on the management of metastatic thyroid cancers or adrenal tumors.
To participate, please submit your case using this webform. You should receive a confirmation e-mail after you click submit. Submissions are due by November 16, 2018. Registration to course is required if selected.
