IASLC International Mentorship Program

The deadline to apply for the International Mentorship Program has now passed.

Due to the overwhelming interest, we are unfortunately not able to accept further applications. Notifications are expected to be available by July 10, 2015. All applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application.

About the Program

The International Mentorship Program is a professional development and education program for early-career physicians/researchers studying thoracic malignancies from economically-developing countries. The awardees are matched with well-established scientific and clinical mentors from within the hosting WCLC region and visit the mentor’s institution for approximately a week following the WCLC.

The award will cover all expenses including travel and accommodation expenses as well as registration fees for WCLC 2015.

Goal of the Program

Share information and ideas and teach skills that the awardee can pass along to his or her colleagues at their home intuitions. Establish communication and collaborative relationships between the mentor and mentee, and their respective institutions.
