21st Annual International Ultmann Chicago Lymphoma Symposium

Chicago, IL US
April 19, 2024 to April 20, 2024
The 21st International Ultmann Chicago Lymphoma Symposium (IUCLS) is a continuation of an annual conference dedicated solely to the science and clinical care of lymphoma. It has been organized to honor the achievements of Dr. John Ultmann, a pioneer in the treatment of lymphoma, who devoted his life to the understanding of this disease. He was particularly known for his work on the staging of Hodgkin lymphoma and the utility of staging as a guide for treatment.

We are fortunate to have a multitude of the world’s experts in lymphoma speak each year at the conference. The audience is comprised of national practicing oncologists, advanced nurse practitioners and physician assistants, nurses, residents, fellows, and the Chicago academic community that includes five academic centers. This year’s program will be offered live on April 19-20, 2024, and represents the 21st IUCLS.

This is a certified continuing medical education (CME) activity that focuses on the biologic, diagnostic, and therapeutic aspects of Hodgkin lymphoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The format of the meeting includes a combination of expert presentations, interactive case discussions, poster and abstract presentations, and an opportunity for question-and-answer debates. Additionally, the entire conference will be certified for nursing continuing education credits.

The goal of this educational activity is to facilitate a forum for physicians, nurses, researchers, and other healthcare professionals to discuss biologic, diagnostic, and therapeutic aspects of Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

IUCLS will gather both domestic and international clinicians and researchers specializing in the treatment of patients with lymphoma.

This event gives opportunities for providers to explore vital information on clinical updates and research in order to ensure they are using the latest treatment options in their practice.
