2023 Mid-Year Conference

April 19-20 in Cancun

Co-hosted and organized by The Veterinary Cancer Society (VCS) and Veterinary Society of Surgical Oncology (VSSO)


Dear VSSO members, VCS members, and the Veterinary Oncology Community,

We are very excited to welcome you to Cancun in April for a joint meeting! After a long hiatus we are finally meeting in person and this will be a great chance to connect with old friends and make some new ones. This format is a favorite as it allows us to consider a truly multidisciplinary approach to cancer treatment and we can’t wait to share discussions in many of the key cancers we see every day. In addition to these cancer specific discussions, some sessions will highlight techniques and approaches that may not yet be part of your regular practice, check out this website for the up to date program and schedule.

See you soon in the sunny south!

Dear VCS members, VSSO members, and the Veterinary Oncology Community,

As the cold winter weather descends upon as we look with excitement toward the Spring 2023 conference in Cancun, Mexico this coming April. This collaboration between the Veterinary Cancer Society and the Veterinary Society of Surgical Oncology (VSSO) is shaping up to be a fun and thought-provoking discussion of topics critical to patient management. There will be specialty sections on anal sac adenocarcinoma, mast cell tumors, surgical margins, sentinel lymph node evaluation, and interventional oncology. Registration for the conference is currently sold out along with the hotel block!

Please see the conference website for schedule, abstract submission information, and accommodation information. This opportunity to engage in multidisciplinary discussion will be stimulating and practice changing. We look forward to convening together in Mexico by the beautiful Caribbean waters in Cancun.

Looking forward to seeing you in Cancun this Spring!
