New ASCO Leadership Development Program for the Asia-Pacific Region

The ASCO Leadership Development Program for the Asia-Pacific region (LDP-AP) will bring together a diverse pan-Asian interdisciplinary group of emerging leaders in oncology, to engage in advocacy efforts, and to promote interdisciplinary collaboration across the region and within ASCO. The LDP-AP will teach culturally relevant skills in leadership, advocacy, communication, presentation skills, media skills, and conflict management. At the conclusion of the program, participants will be better able to lead successful advocacy efforts, build relationships with leaders within their countries, and lead within their own societies, institutions, and ASCO.

To learn more about the new ASCO LDP for the Asia-Pacific region, please view the Application Guidelines. For questions, please email ASCO's International Affairs team.
