5th ESDO Masterclass *virtual* September 10-11, 2021

We are happy about a successful virtual 5th ESDO Masterclass "DO'S and DON’TS in GI ONCOLOGY", organised in collaboration with the Congress of the Polish Society of Clinical Oncology.  

ESDO, the European Society of Digestive Oncology together with the ESDO Young Group and renowned international experts taught on  the latest discoveries in diagnosis and modern therapies for gastrointestinal cancers. The topics were presented live as mini-debates, focusing on what “should be done and what should NOT be done” in practical terms for everyday patients. In special “sponsor corners” we presented the most recent and important trials which are “a must” to be known by GI oncologists. We provided abundant interaction time for all to discuss difficult cases and raise important questions.

We thank the Polish Society of Clinical Oncology for the good cooperation and all sponsors for their valuable support
