In October 2017, a multidisciplinary symposium on new developments in the comprehensive management of Merkel cell carcinoma was held at the University of Rochester Medical Center. The event included specialists across many disciplines such as dermatology, surgical oncology, otolaryngology, radiation oncology, medical oncology, radiology, and plastic surgery. The key points from this event were compiled into an informative pamphlet which can be found here.
