NCCN Hosting its First Annual Global Academy for Excellence and Leadership in Oncology

Please join us in San Francisco for the inaugural NCCN Global Academy, which will take place Friday, October 6, in conjunction with the NCCN 12th Annual Congress: Hematologic Malignancies™.

During this unique program, pharmaceutical and biotechnology professionals are given the rare opportunity to view the global oncology space, its future and its current operational issues from the provider, payer, and patient advocate perspective. This year’s event will have two modules: one of Guideline Panelists and the International Experts who worked on NCCN Regional Guideline Adaptations and will elaborate on the process of creating regional adaptations, and the other of multiple stakeholders to discuss variation in patient advocacy throughout the world and best practices in ensuring access to innovation. 

Registration and full curriculum can be found here

Participants will improve their working knowledge of key global business, policy, informational, and operational issues in oncology and will gather valuable insights material to developing effective strategies for navigating the various constituencies in consideration of worldwide cancer care issues. Through this interactive program, pharmaceutical and biotech professionals will learn from key stakeholders what they view to be the most pressing issues in the global oncology environment and how to apply this knowledge to create mutually successful working relationships.

Professionals from marketing, sales, advocacy, medical affairs, clinical research, international programs, policy and government affairs, and other business areas will better be able to serve their customers with improved knowledge of real-world oncology issues after completion of this program.

Patient Advocates are eligible for complimentary enrollment for this event.  If you are interested in attending, please contact Liz Rieder at
