The Long-Term International Fellowship (LIFe) aims to provide early-career oncologists in developing nations the support and resources needed to advance their training by deepening their relationship with a U.S. or Canadian colleague and his or her institution.
Through a one- to two-year fellowship the recipient will earn valuable training and experience which they will use to effect change in cancer care in their home country. Recipients are required to return to their home institutions after completing their fellowship and are expected to disseminate the knowledge they have gained.
This award provides early-career oncologists from developing nations the opportunity to continue their medical education by:
- Observing a clinical oncology practice in an academic center
- Participating in clinical research opportunities with their mentor
- Attending the ASCO Annual Meeting
