ESMO – the European Society for Medical Oncology – supports oncology professionals in providing cancer patients with the most effective treatment and care. Part of this work involves a fellowship programme, which provides young oncologists time dedicated to learn how to think scientifically and conduct research.
The Palliative Care Fellowships are designed to:
- Provide oncologists or oncology fellows additional experience in palliative care training
- Allow recipients to spend a minimum of one month of observation or research at one of the ESMO Designated Centres of Integrated Oncology and Palliative Care.
Candidates must be an oncologist, an ESMO member and proficient in English. The deadline for applications is 1 June 2015.
