Sociedade Portuguesa de Oncologia

ESMO and the Portuguese Society of Oncology (SPO) signed a joint membership agreement in 2014. The aim of the partnership is to promote education and scientific initiatives to the Portuguese oncology community.

ESMO - SPO Agreement

Since 1 December 2014, members of the SPO benefit from a simplified membership application process to join ESMO, avoiding the need for a Sponsor (i.e. details of an ESMO member who supports your application) or the need to provide an up-to-date Curriculum Vitae in English.

Additionally, all SPO members eligible for ESMO membership at the €175 fee, will benefit from a reduced annual ESMO membership fee of €130 – saving €45.
