This year’s Society of Surgical Oncology’s symposium’s theme is The Spectrum of Innovation and Application. SSO 2018 will feature an education program that covers research developments, clinical trials, new technology, and future trends in cancer care. Much of what you’ll learn you’ll be able to immediately integrate into your treatment of patients with solid tumor cancers.

Gain advanced knowledge, expanding your insight and exposure to the newest ideas through a multitude of presentations and workshops, and apply much of what you learn at SSO 2018 to your own clinical work once you return home. Discover the “best-of-the-best” selected abstracts, presented by their authors during two plenary sessions. Be inspired by more than 400 compelling and thought-provoking posters, along with late-breaking videos showcased in the Exhibit Hall.

Connect with a Full Spectrum of Professionals. SSO 2018 expects to welcome more than 1,800 attendees, comprised of both academic and community practitioners and health care professionals from all surgical oncology specialties. Take the opportunity to connect and collaborate with colleagues and old friends as you network during scheduled Symposium activities, and at lively informal gatherings throughout the event.
