ESMO Young Oncologists Corner

ESMO Young Oncologist Committee proudly presents: the ESMO 2014 Congress Young Oncologists Track

As in previous years the YO Track sessions in the scientific programme of the ESMO congress is planned by young oncologists for young oncologists and packed with useful information especially relevant to YOs.

See the full programme here Get the most out of ESMO 2014

This year’s YO Masterclass is in collaboration with the EACR (European Association for Cancer Research) to focus on the integration of basic science into clinical research.

The highly interactive Vesalius Talk has become an institution in itself as part of the YO Track – three key opinion leaders will give advise and discuss with the audience on how to pave the path to a successful career in oncology -  this is also a great opportunity to network over the cocktail following the talk.

The YO Forum will give practical tips and tricks to cancer researchers in training

Fellowship winners and the best ESMO examinee will be awarded at the closure of the YO Special Session focusing on Fellowship. This year the session also features two previous fellowship award winners who won a competition to present their project – join us for this session to be inspired especially if you are considering applying for an ESMO fellowship yourself.

Start the congress days early on Saturday, Sunday and Monday with full Spanish breakfast as of 7:30 to meet with your colleagues before the YO Breakfast Sessions. These are inspiring and useful sessions on handling the challenges you meet in dealing with media, work-life balance and in the doctor-patient relationship.

Note that the questionnaire about the risks and boundaries in the doctor-patient relationship, which was open for contributions to the YO Breakfast session on the topic, is now closed. Outcome of the questionnaire will be presented during the session on Monday 29 September.
