Following the success of the first meeting in Lisbon last year, the second Update for Practising Oncologists organized by ESMO will take place in Lugano Switzerland, 27-29 April 2018.

Dedicated to oncologists working in hospitals, clinics or private practice, an original, interactive programme has been designed to update participants with the most important oncological advances during the past year. Each session will cover a given tumour type and benefit from an expert analysis which will then be illustrated by cases discussed by a Practicing Oncologist.

Topics covered in 2018 will be Breast, Melanoma, Colorectal, Lymphoma, Myeloma, Gastroesophageal, Prostate, Urothelial and Lung Cancer. Keynote lectures and Workshops are also included in the programme and of particular note will be the presentation of, and special keynote address by, the winner of the prestigious San Salvatore Foundation annual award.

The meeting will be an excellent opportunity for learning and networking with practising oncologists from all over Europe.




The ESMO Update for Practising Oncologists 2018 programme has been accredited with 16 Cat.1 ESMO MORA points. Recertification is necessary for medical oncologists to remain professionally certified by ESMO.
