National Societies and Membership Agreements

Across Oncology. Worldwide.

ESMO addresses the universal needs in oncology by being a reliable partner to all stakeholders in the multidisciplinary oncology environment. We know that we cannot fight this battle alone. Therefore through our activities we unite key oncology stakeholders who share our goals and objectives. Enhancing our relationships with national oncology societies, as well as cooperative research groups, consolidates and strengthens our global network and reinforces our united efforts.

Membership Agreements

An important means to strengthening our collaboration with national societies is our Membership Agreement Programme. 

National oncology societies have the opportunity to enter in to a membership agreement with ESMO, which provides members of the national oncology society with a simplified application process when applying for ESMO membership. 

Members may also be eligible to pay a reduced ESMO membership fee, enabling individuals to enjoy the benefits of ESMO membership in addition to the membership benefits provided by their national society.
