ESMO and the Belgian Society of Medical Oncology (BSMO) signed a joint membership agreement in 2014. The aim of the partnership is to promote education and scientific initiatives to the Belgian oncology community.
ESMO - BSMO Agreement
Since January 2015, members of the BSMO 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 BSMO members eligible for ESMO membership at the €175 fee, will benefit from a reduced annual ESMO membership fee of €130 – saving €45.
If you are a member of the BSMO and eligible to receive this discount, please contact ESMO Membership Services who will update your profile in order for you to benefit from the discounted fee at your next renewal.
