Applications Are Now Being Accepted for the 2018 International Development and Education Award (IDEA) & IDEA in Palliative Care (IDEA-PC)
The IDEA program is designed to provide continuing medical education, assist in career development, and help establish strong relationships with leading ASCO members who serve as scientific mentors to each recipient.
Modeled after the IDEA program, IDEA in Palliative Care (IDEA-PC) is designed to provide support to early-career oncologists from low- and middle-income countries who are interested in palliative medicine.
These awards provide early-career oncologists from low- and middle-income countries the opportunity to continue their medical education by:
- Attending the ASCO Annual Meeting
- Being paired with a mentor from the United States or Canada
- Spending additional time at their mentor’s cancer center
- Benefiting from a three year complimentary ASCO membership
