2019 International Career Development Exchange Recipients

SSO 2019 marks the sixth year for the International Career Development Exchange (ICDE) program. The ICDE program provides support for up-and-coming surgical oncologists, with leadership potential, to attend SSO 2019 and visit one U.S. based institution to observe procedures and enhance their knowledge.

SSO 2019 will host eight ICDE recipients nominated by SSO Partner Societies and two ICDE recipients that were selected from the SSO Call for Applications that took place in October 2018.

ICDE recipients have been paired with SSO members, who will serve as hosts and mentors, with the intent that long-term relationships are developed to help improve cancer care in other countries.
