Member Benefits and Application Procedures

Join the Community... Share the Expertise.

We invite you to join the Society of Surgical Oncoliogy, one of the most respected surgical organizations in the country. SSO is the surgical "home" for academic and community-based physicians involved in the comprehensive management of surgical patients with cancer.

Membership in the Society of Surgical Oncology is open to surgeons, scientists, and other health care providers that are significantly involved in oncologic patient care.

With more than 2,700 members, the Society of Surgical Oncology is large enough to represent your interests yet small enough to meet your individual needs.
