Listservs for Training Program Directors and Fellows

Existing users can manage their accounts here.

ASCO now offers two listserv programs: One for training program directors and one for fellows. Each program has its own listserv for the overall group and additional listserves for subspecialties.

The listservs enable training program directors and fellows to:

  • Interact with their colleagues and peers
  • Ask questions or comment on concerns through a common email

Each listserv is an unmoderated discussion. This means that all replies to an email are posted immediately to the entire group of subscribers for the specific listserv. To contact an individual privately, outside of the discussion, be sure to enter the individual's email address in the "to" area of your email software and make sure that the address of the listserv is not included in the "to" area.

To Reply to a Listserv Message

To reply to a listserv message, provide a brief context to your reply by including a few relevant sentences from the original message.

Listserv Guidelines

Participants in the listservs should submit only messages that are of concern to the subscribers of the specific listserv group.

In addition, listservs do not allow the following materials:

  • Copyrighted material unless the copyright owner of the material has expressly granted its prior written consent to such submission
  • Confidential information such as names of patients and trainees, or postal address or phone numbers for any individual
  • Advertising or commercial messages of any kind
  • Unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, or hateful content; sexually explicit images; or content that is racially, ethnically, or otherwise objectionable, or which infringes on the rights of any third party
  • Attachments to a message

Participants should be careful not to:

  • Collect or use the addresses of listserv subscribers for the purposes of unsolicited email marketing, or “spam”
  • Forward chain mail
  • Falsely impersonate any person or communicate under a false name or a name you do not have authority to use

On notification of improper activity by a listserv participant, ASCO will permanently remove the offending party from the list. If violations continue, ASCO will take appropriate legal action.
