Montana Hematology Oncology Conference

Whitefish, MT US
June 8, 2024

The Montana Hematology Oncology Conference is a 1-day educational and scientific meeting that will focus on key clinical topics in the management of common malignancies. This conference will feature leading experts discussing the latest diagnostic, therapeutic, and supportive care strategies in cancer management. The field of oncology is continually evolving with the introduction of new targeted therapies, cellular therapies, and immunotherapy. These advances present new opportunities to tailor treatment approaches for cancer patients based on disease-related and patient-related factors. Significant disparities exist in access to continuing education for physicians practicing in rural settings. Engaging, easily accessible continuing education activities focusing on content that has practical applications for the provider may significantly impact patient outcomes. There is a need for these educational activities in rural settings to update practicing healthcare providers about recent advances in the field. This highly practical and interactive symposium will provide a unique opportunity for healthcare professionals to learn from and interact with well-known experts in the field. 

Target Audience

  • Hematologist/Oncologists
  • Oncology Physician Assistants/Nurse Practitioners
  • Oncology Pharmacists
  • Oncology Nurses
