SIOP serves its members in multiple ways: through building a sense of community, convening diverse stakeholders and partners, advocacy, and education and knowledge management; facilitating the professional learning by provision of resources, linkages and information that they need to carry out their clinical paediatric oncology practices.
Education and training are some of the key features for pediatric oncology providers to join SIOP. SIOP members strive to expand their medical and scientific knowledge on paediatric cancer through a number of means: attending the SIOP’s Annual Congresses and meetings of its continental branches, accessing educational resources on the SIOP website including learning modules on SIOP knowledge centre and treatment protocols, and updating their knowledge about recently published articles through SOSIDO digest listerv, etc.
The SIOP Education & Training Committee spearheads the work on Goal 3 of the SIOP Strategy 2021-2025 (Providing Education and Training), and strives to make opportunities for continued education and training for the entire SIOP community.
The SIOP Education and Training Committee is chaired by Mohammad Saghir Khan.
