Education

ANCO organizes an ambitious annual clinical and professional education meeting schedule consisting of several Highlights programs, practice administrator meetings, and occasional special meetings. We also keep our members informed of other meetings of interest (in California and beyond), including ACCC's meetings, ASCO's Annual Meeting and Symposia & Workshops, and ASH's meetings.

The ANCO Education Committee and Board of Directors clinical education strategy (adopted in 2004) is as follows:

  1. ANCO has very successfully organized several annual Highlights programs over the past several years. These have been our best attended, supported, and received programs to date. ANCO will expand (i.e., add time, national faculty, locations, delivery systems) to our existing offerings (i.e., San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, ASH, ASCO) and add additional Highlights programs.
  2. In light of a need for additional nursing continuing medical education and the PhRMA and OIG guidelines, ANCO will seek accreditation for ANCO clinical education meetings via our Institutional Members, other academic centers, ASCO, and possibly through IMQ/CMA.
  3. ANCO will only consider proposals for single-sponsor, evening clinical education dinner meetings that feature the highest quality speakers (i.e., thought leaders) on the most important clinical topics.
Clinical Education

ANCO's clinical education meetings, including Highlights meetings of the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, ASH Annual Meeting, and ASCO Annual Meeting present distinguished speakers on pertinent clinical topics in oncology. Participants not only learn at these meetings, but they enjoy a social dinner atmosphere with their colleagues. In addition, ANCO disseminates information about several clinical education programs per year organized by our Institutional Members.

Upcoming clinical education meetings (locations, dates) are:

• SABCS Highlights 2017 (Location/Date in January 2018 TBA)
