Oncologists from Low- and Middle-Income Countries, Apply for the International Development and Education Award (IDEA) and IDEA in Palliative Care (IDEA-PC)
The International Development and Education Award (IDEA) provides support for early-career oncologists in low- and middle-income countries to attend the ASCO Annual Meeting and visit a cancer center in the United States or Canada. Modeled after the IDEA program, IDEA in Palliative Care is designed for those who are interested in palliative medicine. Both programs provide continuing medical education, assists in career development, and help recipients establish strong relationships with leading ASCO members who serve as scientific mentors. In addition, recipients receive 3 years of complimentary ASCO membership. IDEA and IDEA-PC are supported by ASCO’s Conquer Cancer Foundation. Applications are due October 31, 2018. Learn more.
