National Societies and Joint Membership

Europe-wide collaboration

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 European oncology societies, as well as cooperative research groups, consolidates and strengthens our European Network and reinforces our united efforts.

Joint membership agreement

An important means to achieve a pan-European collaboration is our Joint Membership Agreement Programme.

I became a member of AIOM and ESMO in 2010, when the reciprocal membership agreement was signed. As a member you receive the scientific journal Annals of Oncology which publishes high-level papers. You can stay updated through the electronic newsletter, which I find very useful: with short summaries you get an idea of what is important, and you can then go deeper into what you are most interested in. The Translational Research Unit visits represent a great opportunity for young oncologists, wanting to get a deeper knowledge in new areas of research.
Join ESMO! it's a great chance to grow and improve, all together!
