The seventh edition of the ASCO Self-Evaluation Program® (ASCO-SEP®) is now available online, expanding its reach to physicians and advanced practitioners. The latest edition features new content that addresses oncologic care in a global setting.
The new edition of ASCO-SEP includes 22 chapters of disease-specific content, including information on breast, lung, gastrointestinal, and genitourinary cancers. It also provides the latest practice updates on topics such as molecular oncology, immuno-oncology, biologic therapy, genetics, symptom management, and palliative care. Learners in the global oncology community will also gain new insight into the unique challenges of cancer care around the world in the “Global Perspectives” section of each chapter.
“ASCO-SEP has served thousands of physicians since it was first published in 2007. The new edition is better than ever because it has the potential to reach physicians globally,” said ASCO-SEP Editor-in-Chief Benjamin Levy, MD. “The program also provides a more expansive body of expertise to serve not only physicians but advanced practitioners as well.”

The self-assessment tool enables learners to test their knowledge across the full range of topics, and they can receive credit for self-assessments after each chapter.
Additionally, a new ASCO eBook app will host a version of ASCO-SEP content and offer new features for readers to take notes, add bookmarks, and search content. A print version of ASCO-SEP will also be available.
ASCO-SEP online will be updated every 6 months to capture new advances in medical oncology and feature more tables, graphics, and other resources embedded in the program, including ASCO, National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN), and European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) Practice Guidelines.
Learners will have access to ASCO podcasts, eLearning courses, and selected videos from the ASCO Meeting Library to benefit from a more comprehensive learning experience.
