The program seeks to educate physicians-in-training about rewarding careers in oncology by fostering relationships with mentors who can provide career and educational guidance and serve as a professional resource. The 2020 ASCO Diversity Mentoring Program term will begin in Fall 2020. The mentoring term is up-to 12 months with a 6 month minimum commitment.
