The International Ultmann Chicago Lymphoma Symposium (IUCLS) is an annual conference dedicated solely to the science and clinical care of lymphoma. It has been organized to honor the achievements of Dr. John Ultmann, a pioneer in the treatment of lymphoma, who devoted his life to the understanding of this disease. He was particularly known for his work on the staging of Hodgkin lymphoma and the utility of staging as a guide for treatment.
We are fortunate to have a multitude of the world’s experts in lymphoma speak each year at the conference. The audience is comprised of regional practicing oncologists, advanced nurse practitioners and physician assistants, residents, fellows, and the Chicago academic community that includes five academic centers.
This is a certified continuing medical education (CME) activity that focuses on the biologic, diagnostic, and therapeutic aspects of Hodgkin lymphoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. This year’s meeting will be held virtually on Friday and Saturday and will include a combination of expert presentations, a hematopathology multidisciplinary tumor board discussion, mini symposiums on Indolent lymphoma, Aggressive lymphomas, Primary and Secondary CNS lymphoma, Targeted and Cellular therapies, Imaging, and include a allied healthcare professional session. Additionally, we’ll have a special presentation regarding the impact of COVID-19 on lymphoma treatment.
Virtual symposium components will include:
- LIVE stream session broadcast in real time
- Opportunities to submit questions to presenters during the live broadcast
- Ability to interact with other virtual participants via symposium attendee chat tool
- Access to the virtual exhibit hall for connectivity and information
- CME and MOC credits for physicians and CNE credits for nurses
- Access to download presenter slide decks approved for release
The symposium has been designed for medical hematologists/oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, surgical oncologists, fellows-in-training, oncology nurses, and allied health professionals committed to the diagnosis and treatment of lymphoma.
