IO Essentials

SIO is thrilled to present this year's revamped IO Essentials program, the premier event for early career IO. Previously referred to as the Early Career program. 

Taking place alongside SIO’s annual meeting, the brightest minds in interventional oncology have revamped this targeted program for interventional oncology and radiology residents, fellows, and faculty within the first five years of completing fellowships.  After attending this event, early career interventional oncologists will:

  • Get up-to-speed on the cutting-edge IO research and treatment algorithms
  • Understand the latest clinical and translational research and how it relates to patient care
  • Collect tips for building a successful clinical practice and technical how-to’s to ensure a successful career in IO
  • Expand their network, including peers and pioneers in the field

Stay tuned! The schedule will be updated frequently. We’ll be announcing special industry sessions presented by BTG, Guerbet, Surefire Medical, and Neuwave.

This year's program will feature new learning formats and exciting sessions including:
