Continuing Medical Education and Maintenance of Certification Information

SSO is committed to helping surgical oncologists maintain and improve their quality of patient care. This requires constant acquisition of new knowledge, skills and outlooks to enable continued competence and improved performance in practice. Continuing professional development and life-long learning acknowledges not only the broad competencies needed to practice high quality medicine but also the multidisciplinary context of patient care.

SSO offers a variety of CME and MOC Part 2 activities which contribute to the process of ongoing learning, assessment and improvement in patient care. Learn more about SSO educational activities.
