On behalf of the International Scientific Committee and the local organising committee, we would like to invite you to participate in this superb summit designed to support the continued medical education of early career oncologists. The event is being held at the Tata Medical Center on the 19th-20th October 2019.
The meeting has been organised by the Tata Medical Center and ecancer. It is being supported by King’s College, London, the National Cancer Grid and the Tata Trusts as well as regional oncology societies.
The meeting will be attended by around 150 early career oncologists from across India, as well as surgical, ENT, and radiotherapy trainees and other doctors involved in the first line treatment of cancer.
Programme and meeting objectives
Our goal is to extend the knowledge of prevention, screening, diagnostics, palliation and therapeutics topics in the five most commonly diagnosed malignancies (breast, gynaecological, lung, head and neck and gastric cancer).
These topics will be approached from the perspective of 'choosing wisely', an initiative launched in over twenty countries and which has recently been championed in India by the National Cancer Grid. The programme will be delivered by regional and international experts.
Our objective is to help support capacity building in the India healthcare system, promote best practice and ultimately deliver better outcomes for cancer patients.
In parallel with the meeting will be five disease specific tumour boards lead by the specialist teams at Tata Medical Center.
