BSMO Annual Meeting 2018

Friday 23 and Saturday 24 February 2018

We wish to invite and welcome you to the 20th Annual Meeting of the BSMO, a unique annual opportunity to gather as a community and exchange ideas and engage in cooperation.

These are exciting but also challenging times for the medical oncologist with quickly evolving treatments and getting treatments in a timely fashion to the right patients. On Saturday morning the symposium relates to several aspects of our profession with a balanced clinical and scientific mix. It is these scientific insights combined with compassionate patient care that make the medical oncologist.

Abstracts on any topic are welcome and you don’t have to be a junior member, as long as you feel like one. For educational purposes junior members will have priority for oral presentations. Also challenging and educational case reports which relate to new therapies will be considered.

Looking forward to meet you at this exciting meeting on February 23 and 24!

Jacques De Grève,
BSMO President
