Milan, Italy - 03 Feb - 05 Feb 2020

ESMO is delighted to announce that the ESMO Sarcoma and GIST Symposium 2020 will take place from 3 to 5 February 2020 in Milan, Italy.

ESMO’s Sarcoma & GIST Symposium is a highly specialised meeting bringing together the most brilliant medical minds working on these tumour types. The Symposium is known as the place of choice for international networking and collaboration, featuring discussions with the key opinion leaders in these rare sub-entities.The Symposium brings translational researchers and clinicians together and builds on an integrated approach for improved patient outcomes.

ESMO Preceptorship Course

Prior to the Sarcoma & GIST Symposium, ESMO traditionally runs a half-day course, led by an expert faculty, designed to provide young oncologists with a brief outline of both STS & GIST. This course may be a first contact with these diseases for oncologists interested in knowing more and who need an introduction prior to attending the higher-level Symposium in the two days that follow.

ESMO Advanced Sarcoma Course

Also prior to the Sarcoma & GIST Symposium, ESMO runs an Advanced Sarcoma Course. This is a half-day event offering an intensive discussion of a set of clinical cases of STS & GIST for professionals who are already familiar with these diseases. Attendees benefit from discussions about challenging clinical cases with specialists from both the EU and U.S.A., leveraging the different perspectives and expertise across continents. This course is an ideal preparation for clinicians joining the Sarcoma & GIST Symposium.
