What it's all about

Promoting the next generation of young oncologists: Our core initiative to promote young researchers is the Young Oncology Academy, a mentoring program for young oncologists. The program is aimed at residents at the beginning of their medical career with a clear focus on cancer medicine, hematology, radio-oncology, urology, gynecology, pathology, surgery or dermatology, who would like to actively contribute to clinical and translational research

Why you should join

Insights into clinical and translational research: For almost one year, the participants of the academy are under the guidance of a renowned faculty member. A particular focus lies on providing the young talents with insights into the successful development, management, execution and publication of a clinical trial.

As part of the academy, participants also attend the ESMO congress, or the EHA (for hematologists) or ESTRO (for radio-oncologists) congresses, respectively.
