Most Important Educational Content
This conference provides fellows with an approach to multiple types of clinical encounters and gives them additional information about hospital services that are available to deal with these problems.
For multidisciplinary conferences, representation from pathology, surgery, radiology, and radiation oncology is an important component of the conferences. The conferences are held in rooms equipped for projection of slides (by the pathologist), x-rays (for the radiologist), and slides, video, or computer graphics (for the attending or fellow giving a presentation).
