ASCO is looking for oncologists from all disciplines to mentor recipients of the Conquer Cancer Foundation of ASCO's International Development and Education Award (IDEA). Mentors host recipients for three-day visits following the ASCO Annual Meeting and support their ongoing professional development.

The IDEA program supports 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 scientific mentors. Upon the mentees' return to their home institution, it is expected they will remain in touch with mentors. This ongoing communication opens up opportunities for consulting and collaborating in the future.

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.
