GRU Presents the 32nd International Prostate Cancer Update

The International Prostate Cancer Update (IPCU), is a multi-day, CME-accredited conference focused on prostate cancer treatment updates. IPCU 32 will feature lectures, interactive panel discussions, debates, and case-based presentations. This conference is led by expert physicians and is designed for urologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and other healthcare professionals involved in the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer.

The goal of this educational program is to equip healthcare professionals involved in the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer with the up-to-date clinical knowledge and tools they need to best treat their patients. The program will discuss prostate cancer care from diagnosis to treating advanced and metastatic disease. The conference aims to give physicians exposure to a comprehensive review of how to treat prostate cancer and to give them a chance to discuss key issues with peers and experts.
