Dear Esteemed Colleagues and Friends,

It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that we extend a warm welcome to each of you as we approach the momentous occasion of the 60th Anniversary of the Philippine Society of Oncologists. 

We are honored to invite you to join us in celebrating this significant milestone at our convention themed “DIAMOND: DIAGNOSTIC AND MULTIDISCIPLINARY ONCOLOGIC DEVELOPMENTS TOWARDS PRECISION OUTCOMES”.

This convention promises to be a landmark event, showcasing the collaborative efforts of various medical societies dedicated to advancing cancer care. Our focus on “Diagnostic and Multidisciplinary Oncologic Developments” underscores the importance of scientific innovation and its impact on patient outcomes. Throughout the two-day event, we will delve into basic and advanced lectures, offering guidelines for cancer care, personalized precision diagnostics, and management.

Our line-up of distinguished speakers and guests from esteemed medical professional organizations will present practice-changing recommendations in their respective fields. Through collaborative efforts, we aim to build a wealth of multidisciplinary scientific data and evidence, providing up-to-date recommendations from surgery, medical oncology, radiation oncology, pathology, radiology, and allied healthcare services.

This event will relaunch the Philippine Journal of Oncology, the pioneer, peer-reviewed journal publishing quality research from different fields of cancer care. In addition, this convention will launch the “Comprehensive Handbook in Immuno-Oncology and Immunotherapy”, a guide for clinicians to the latest therapeutic innovations, indications, and up-to-date evidence.

The convention will not only explore advancements in research reflecting clinical practices across the Philippines through the Research Contest but also offer opportunities for engagement for multidisciplinary team management in a fun and exciting way through the Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) Cup.  Sharing best practices, fostering community-government partnerships, and promoting diagnostic collaborations for cancer care will be key highlights of our event.

As we gather to celebrate this historic occasion, let us unite to improve cancer care from a multidisciplinary perspective, contributing to the meaningful and lasting impact of this event. Thank you for being part of history, engaging in shaping the future of oncology! Together, let us continuously strive for precision outcomes that transform the landscape of cancer care in the Philippines.

Welcome to the 60th Anniversary of the Philippine Society of Oncologists! Welcome to PSO family!

Warm regards,
