Diversity in Oncology Initiative
ASCO’s Diversity in Oncology Initiative is designed to facilitate the recruitment and retention of individuals who are underrepresented in medicine to cancer careers. ASCO believes that increasing the size and diversity of the clinical oncology workforce is an important and necessary step to improving access to high-quality, effective, affordable, and compassionate cancer care for the underserved. To help promote diversity in the field, the Society launched the ASCO Diversity Mentoring Program. In addition, the Society, through the Conquer Cancer Foundation, offers specific award opportunities, including the Medical Student Rotation for Underrepresented Populations and the Resident Travel Award for Underrepresented Populations.
The Conquer Cancer Foundation works to overcome cancer by funding breakthrough research and sharing cutting-edge knowledge with patients and physicians worldwide. Learn more about CCF’s numerous funding and grant opportunities for researchers at all stages of their careers.
The ASCO Membership Directory is your go-to tool for finding and interacting with other ASCO members. Designed to keep you in touch with like-minded colleagues, the Membership Directory app enables you to build your professional network, connect with colleagues at meetings and easily provide other ASCO members’ information to patients seeking a referral. Using the app, members can search by name, organization, specialty and/or certification.
With new treatments coming out seemingly daily and limited time for learning, it can be hard to stay on top of the latest in oncology. So when you do have the time, you want the resources you utilize to meet your own learning style. The ASCO Personalized Learning Dashboard helps you to sift through all of the information out there and find content recommendations tailored to your media preferences.
