Mark your calendars and clear your schedules for the first weekend in October!  The Advances in Thoracic Surgical Oncology course is October 3rd – 4th, 2014.

Unlike many of the association conferences  – this conference is not geared at the thoracic surgery specialty or cardiothoracic surgery crowd in its entirety.

This course, offered by the internationally famous Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, New York is focused on the use of thoracic surgery in modern cancer treatment, particularly in the treatment of lung and esophageal cancers*.

As a world-famous academic and cancer research center, Sloan Kettering has hundreds of educational offerings for practicing physicians, nurses and other health care professionals as well as Fellowships and doctoral programs in specialty focus areas.

The event is hosted by Dr. David R. Jones, a thoracic surgeon and recent transplant from the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia.  Dr. Jones is the Chief of Thoracic Surgery, and the Surgical Director of the Thoracic Oncology Program at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
