Training, Research, and Clinical Trials
An Educational Resource
Despite the successes of hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemoperfusion (HIPEC) treatments, they have not been generally applied to patients, partly because of a lack of training among cancer specialists.
The David C. Koch Regional Perfusion Cancer Therapy Center is a training facility for established surgeons with an interest in perfusion procedures, as well as for fellows in surgical training and surgical cancer fellowship programs.
This training program provides medical professionals with the opportunity to:
- Observe perfusion procedures
- View instructional video
- Attend formal training classes
- Utilize Internet-based learning tools
- Participate in conferences for updates in HIPEC technology
International Symposium on Regional Cancer Therapies
The symposium is sponsored by the David C. Koch Regional Cancer Therapy Center, the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine Center for Continuing Education in the Health Sciences, and UPMC CancerCenter.
Physicians and nurses practicing:
- Medical oncology
- Surgical oncology
- Thoracic oncology
- Gynecologic oncology
Researchers in the fields of:
- Regionally applied biological therapies
