This live virtual activity will cover the diagnosis, treatment, and management of advanced thyroid cancer.


This educational activity is intended for oncologists and endocrinologists, as well as pathologists, along with their multidisciplinary teams in academic centers and the community setting who are especially challenged in keeping up with the most current data on new and emerging, less commonly occurring genomic alterations, genomic testing methodologies, and optimal treatment decisions for patients with thyroid cancer.


After completing the CME activity, learners should be better able to:

  • Utilize best practices for identifying actionable thyroid cancer molecular/genomic alterations in routine clinical practice.
  • Integrate available and emerging targeted treatment options into routine clinical practice for the treatment of patients with advanced thyroid cancer based on results showing actionable molecular/genomic alterations.
