Self-Study or Group Lecture


AJCC has developed cancer staging education for cancer registrars and the surveillance community through the support of the CDC.  This education will assist registrars with the transition to directly assigning AJCC TNM stage.

These presentations can be used as self-study or for use at local, regional, or state-meetings.  Questions may be submitted to the AJCC Forum within the CAnswer Forum.

Presentations will open in Adobe Reader.  Ctrl L or View-Full Screen Mode will enable the best viewing and can be advanced using the arrow keys, pg up or down, or a presentation remote control.  Handouts can also be downloaded.
