|Kim Margolin, MD, with her mentee, Kristina Orlova, MD (2012 IDEA recipient)|
Oncologists of all disciplines are needed to host recipients of the International Development and Education Award (IDEA) for three-day visits following the ASCO Annual Meeting.
The purpose of the IDEA program is to support the professional development of early-career oncologists in low- and middle-income countries around the world. The program pairs IDEA recipients with ASCO members in the United States or Canada who serve as their scientific mentors. Upon the mentees’ return to their home institution, it is expected that mentors and mentees remain in contact and pursue opportunities for consultation and collaboration.
For additional information about the award terms, criteria, and IDEA alumni, visit the Conquer Cancer Foundation.
Eligibility: ASCO Full Members (previously known as "Active" members) practicing in the U.S. or Canada.
