Apply for ASCO’s Leadership Development Program
Apply now for the ASCO Leadership Development Program (LDP), a year-long program designed to help exceptional mid-career oncologists become future leaders within ASCO and their institutions. LDP participants have a unique opportunity to gain extensive exposure to the mission of ASCO, to leadership positions within the organization, and to the Society’s role in improving cancer care and patient welfare.
A significant time commitment for travel and training is required for the Program, as participants must attend all Leadership meetings and activities held throughout the year, including the ASCO Annual Meeting. International and US participants are in the same LDP program, and all activities are held in the United States. As part of this year-long commitment, participants will network with prominent Society leaders, participate in a leadership training held at ASCO Headquarters, visit US government agencies, and gain firsthand knowledge about ASCO research activities. Participants will also participate in an interactive learning project, allowing them to collaborate with each other, ASCO staff and volunteers. The projects will offer hands-on training that will further participants’ leadership skills, as well as benefit the Society as a whole.
Applications for the 2013-14 year are open now. More information can be found at this web page
