Dana Farber Cancer Institute Building Background

Master Class
Virtual Series

23 October - 14 November 2020

The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute's Master Class Virtual Series is specifically designed to assist community oncologists with self-assessing and improving their knowledge, clinical skills, and competence in the diagnosis, treatment, and overall management of a wide range of common cancers. Emphasis is placed on incorporating emerging clinical trial evidence and newer therapeutic approaches into current best practices. Master Class education takes place at a level similar to that of major national oncology sessions, but is uniquely tailored to fill identified knowledge, competence, and performance gaps among practicing community oncologists.

The virtual series consists of five live sessions beginning October 23, 2020 and wrapping up on November 13, 2020. The audio and video for each session will be captured and available to attendees on the website until January 31, 2022. Please visit the schedule section of the website for session agendas.

Special Features Include:

  • A notes feature will be enabled for all slides presented during each live session. Attendees have the option of making notes directly to the slides which will be emailed at the conclusion of each session. A paper syllabus will not be provided.
  • PDFs of the presentation slides will be posted to the website two days prior to the start of each session. PDFs can be downloaded and printed by attendees if needed.
  • Can't join in for all five live sessions? Each session will be captured (audio and video) and placed on the website for future participation. This feature will be available December 1, 2020 through January 31, 2022.

Target Audience

The Master Class curriculum is intended to educate community oncologists (MDs and DOs) across the US. Master Class participation usually includes other members of the oncology care team as well, such as internal medicine physicians, advanced practice nurses, and nurse practitioners.

Course schedule

During the past 12 years, our Master Class courses have always stressed the dialogue between our faculty and our registrants with a goal of sharing new advances and practice options to enhance the care of all our patients. Our virtual agenda will maintain this tradition, providing updates on advances in cancer care and maintaining the interaction between speakers and the audience that has made these sessions so special.
