ESMO Young Oncologist Journal Club

The ESMO Young Oncologists Committee is proud to host the Young Oncologist Journal Club. On a regular basis (1-3 times a month), a committee member – or a specially invited young oncologists – provides you with an appraisal of an important clinical and/or translational article published in a major journal. The appraisers add their comments analysing the clinical relevance of the article and possible considerations.

Get involved by reading the review, share your thoughts and raise questions for discussion by logging in and commenting on the article. Commenting is reserved to ESMO Members only. We look forward to your input!
