NOTICE: COVID-19 Impact on IME 

At Seattle Genetics, the safety and well-being of our employees, and the patients and healthcare communities we serve, are our highest priority. In light of the current COVID-19 health pandemic, we will prioritize reviews of virtual or online education activities, programs with enduring materials, and proposals that employ novel methods of educating during these uncertain times. Live events will continue to be considered when restrictions limiting in-person attendance at professional development and medical society meetings are lifted. We will continue to assess the COVID-19 situation and update this notice as necessary.
