ASCO mentoring initiatives aim to support ASCO members’ individual learning, growth, and professional development needs. ASCO offers a wide variety of mentoring, including long-term and situational mentoring for both international and domestic participants across multiple populations and career stages.

ASCO’s Virtual Mentoring Program (VMP) pairs members, both domestic and international, with a mentor outside of their institution to address unmet career development needs. The ASCO Diversity Mentoring Program (DMP) is designed to encourage U.S.-based medical students and residents who are underrepresented in medicine (UIM) to pursue rewarding careers in oncology.

More information about VMP, DMP, and other ASCO mentorship opportunities can be found below.
