This course focuses on case-based and didactic presentations from Mayo Clinic and other international experts in the treatment of the whole spectrum of gastrointestinal (GI) cancers, including esophageal, gastric, hepatocellular, biliary tract, pancreatic, small bowel, colorectal, and neuroendocrine. 

The primary goal of this course is to guide practicing physicians on integrating the best and most current evidence into day-to-day routine care for patients with GI cancers. This course brings a practical perspective on how to optimize multidisciplinary care for some of the more complex clinical management decisions. Topics discussed include locoregional modalities, the role of minimally invasive procedures, and state-of-the-art radiation modalities.

Target Audience

This course is designed for medical, radiation and surgical oncologists; gastroenterology surgeons, gastroenterologists and hepatologists involved in cancer care; interventional radiologists; pharmacists; nurse practitioners; physician assistants; and nurses. Other healthcare professionals involved in the care of patients diagnosed with GI malignancies may benefit from this program.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Interpret evidence-based interdisciplinary treatment strategies into clinical practice in various fields of medical oncology.
  • Determine the usefulness of genomic and immune-based treatment approaches in oncology.
  • Review the current and future role of immunotherapy strategies in various GI malignancies.
  • Examine the appropriate treatment strategy for patients with early stage cancers of GE junction, rectum, pancreas, and liver.
  • Describe ideal patients with neuroendocrine tumors that would be candidates for radionuclide therapy.
  • Describe the molecular biology and genetics of colorectal cancers.
  • State the appropriate regimens for sequencing therapies across multiple GI malignancies.
