TMA's Physician Oncology Education Program (POEP) Speakers' Bureau currently includes more than 100 cancer experts across the state who volunteer their time to speak to physicians and other health care professionals on cancer prevention, screening, early detection, and control issues . Many lectures are approved for CME credit, including ethics.
It's easy to request a POEP speaker. Contact the POEP with your topic choices and ideal dates for programs. The POEP recommends 60 to 90 days lead time for the recruitment of speakers. The POEP staff will contact members of the Speakers' Bureau to determine availability for the requested dates and coordinate the speaker's schedule. The POEP reimburses the speaker for travel, lodging, meal expenses, and any fees associated with his/her services. In some cases, the POEP may be able to assist with costs associated with room rentals, audio-visual needs, and production of supplemental materials. There is no cost to the requesting institution or organization.
To request speakers from the POEP Speakers' Bureau, contact the POEP at (800) 880-1300, ext. 1671, (512) 370-1671, or e-mail: Leslie Jones .
The POEP also presents state-wide clinical symposia on the latest developments in cancer prevention, early detection, screening, and control. These symposia continue to grow in popularity with primary care providers, and by partnering with organizations such as the American Cancer Society (ACS), the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, and the Nurse Oncology Education Program (NOEP), the POEP ensures that these programs reach physicians with timely information that is relevant to their practice.
All POEP Speakers' Bureau members are reviewed by the POEP Steering Committee , consisting of twenty-one medical and education professionals, including representatives from each medical school in Texas, specialty societies, and other related organizations. For more information on the program, contact the POEP at (800) 880-1300, ext. 1671, (512) 370-1671, or e-mail: Leslie Jones .
