ESMO and the Federation of Romanian Cancer Societies signed a joint membership agreement in 2014. The aim of the agreement is to promote education and scientific initiatives within the Romanian oncology community.
ESMO - FRCS Agreement
Since November 2014, members of societies represented by the FRCS (including RSRMO and RSR) now 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.
ESMO members in Romanian who are medical doctors, can benefit from the annual ESMO membership fee of €50 (online access only to Annals of Oncology), due to Romania being classified by the World Bank as an upper-middle income country, based on the Gross National Income (GNI) per capita and calculated using the World Bank Atlas method.
Members of of societies represented by the FRCS who would ordinarily qualify for the €175 membership fee and wish to receive the paper subscription of Annals of Oncology can benefit from a reciprocal membership fee of €75.
If you are a member of a society represented by the FRCS 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.
