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 a requisite 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 and, 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 awards.
