15th Annual International Ultmann Chicago Lymphoma Symposium
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 offered in May 2018 represents the 15th 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. IUCLS is a two-day meeting held Friday and Saturday at the Kimpton Gray Hotel. Friday afternoon academic sessions concentrate on the scientific and translational aspects of lymphoma, while Saturday has a clinical focus. Additionally, the entire conference will be certified for nursing continuing education credits for the first time. A Friday morning session will be held that will specifically address the educational needs of nurses.
