UroOncology Review

Dr. Joseph Chin Uro-Oncology Spring Review May 25, 2024

The 28th Annual Urologic Oncology Review will take place on May 25, 2024 at the Ivey Spencer Leadership Centre, 551 Windermere Road, London, ON, N5X 2T1

This year, we will be joining the JK Wyatt Urology Residents Research Day, that will happen on May 24, 2024 at the same venue.

Our guest professor, Dr. Stephen Freedland, will be joining us from Cedars-Sinai in California. His recent lead of the EMBARK clinical trial (Improved Outcomes with Enzalutamide in Biochemically Recurrent Prostate Cancer - PubMed (nih.gov)) has significantly advanced our understanding and treatment of prostate cancer. Please see his brief biography below.

We are also fortunate this year to have Dr. Joseph Chin return to the stage to regale us on everything he has been up to (both academic and non-academic pursuits!) post-retirement.

The rest of the agenda will provide participants with a state-of-the-art talks given by our illustrious faculty. Please see the agenda below for further details.

We look forward to welcoming you to London for this great academic urology tradition.

Warm Regards,

Uro-Oncology Retreat Organizing Committee
