2017 International Career Development Exchange Participants

SSO 2017 marks the fourth year for the International Career Development Exchange (ICDE) program. The ICDE program provides support for up-and-coming surgical oncologists, with leadership potential, who are members of an SSO Partner Society. In addition to attending SSO 2017, the ICDE recipients will have the opportunity to visit two U.S. based institutions to observe procedures and enhance their knowledge. ICDE recipients have been paired with SSO members, who will serve as hosts and mentors, with the intent that long-term relationships are developed in order to help improve cancer care in other countries.
