OVERVIEW
The Society for Neuro-Oncology (SNO) and members of the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) Section on Neuro-Oncology are pleased to announce the 2nd Annual Neuro-Oncology Fellow and Early Clinician/Investigator Career Retreat on Monday, November 9, 2020, and Tuesday, November 10, 2020. 

SNO and the AAN have a history of supporting careers in neuro-oncology.  SNO and members of the AAN present the annual career retreat as part of their commitment to the future of neuro-oncology and the specialists who will create it.  This course includes a comprehensive exploration of issues of importance to early career neuro-oncologists in the clinic and in the laboratory.  This program was designed with both clinical and laboratory professionals in mind; we encourage fellows and early career faculty from any related neuro-oncology specialty to participate.  If you are a Fellowship Director, Division Chief, or Leader in Neuro-oncology, please encourage your fellows and early faculty to register.
