International Observership Opportunities
2019 International Career Development Exchange (ICDE) Recipients
Several SSO partner societies offer observership opportunities to SSO members. Observerships typically include registration to the sponsoring society’s annual meeting and visits to medical centers. Currently there are no open opportunities.
Addressing the rising burden of global cancer care requires appropriately trained surgical oncologists. The SSO and the European Society of Surgical Oncology came together to develop a global curriculum to address variations and inadequacies in training.
As one of SSO’s first international partners, the Japanese Society of Gastroenterological Surgery (JSGS) has worked with SSO on several different initiatives. The JSGS has offered Observership programs since 2015 and has participated in the International Career Development Exchange programs since 2014. SSO leaders frequently serve as guest Faculty and will present data at an upcoming JSGS/SSO Joint Symposium during 74th General Meeting of the Japanese Society of Gastroenterological Surgery.
