The Society for Neuro-Oncology is pleased to announce a full-day Neuro-Oncology Review Course as part of its educational programs for 2016. The course will take place on November 16, 2016, from 7:15am - 6:00pm at the Scottsdale Fairmont Princess Hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona, immediately preceding the SNO Annual Scientific Meeting and Education Day.
Building on the success of the 2015 program, this year the organizers will host a full-day of fast paced, high quality education and CME credits for all participants. The faculty of the course, selected from top neuro-oncology programs, will offer a comprehensive overview of clinical neuro-oncology. In addition to the course syllabus, participants will receive a set of multiple-choice questions that allow for consolidation of the acquired material and help them prepare for the specialty boards.
