Trainee and Early-career Attendees

Expert Office Hours – New this year!

Symposium leadership understands the importance of mentorship for early-career attendees, and in an effort to provide further guidance from more senior faculty, for the first time ever we are offering Expert Office Hours. The program has many opportunities for interactive Q and A throughout all sessions, but we hope this will allow a portion of attendees to dive deeper into tough questions/cases.

Expert Office Hours offer informal/unstructured face-to-face time with multidisciplinary experts in the field of thoracic cancers care. Personal, one-on-one conversations are meant to address anything from general career advice to more specific questions regarding research or a difficult case.

Attendees do not need to register or sign up for a specific faculty volunteer—just drop in if and when it is convenient for them and as seating allows.

Trainee and Early-career Networking Luncheon

The Trainee and Early-career Networking Luncheon offers attendees an invaluable opportunity to speak with and learn from experts in the lung cancer care community. Join faculty in an informal setting to discuss topics such as how to build a network outside of your institution, how to establish yourself as a clinical investigator, how to evaluate job opportunities and how to move on after your first job. By attending, you will gain meaningful insight into career paths and development that will help support you in your medical career. (Note: Early-career is defined as any attendee who is less than three years out of their training.)
