The awardees are matched with well-established scientific and clinical mentors from within the hosting WCLC region and visit the mentor’s institution for approximately a week following the WCLC.

The award will cover all expenses including travel and accommodation expenses as well as registration fees for IASLC WCLC 2018.

The goals of the International Mentorship Award Program are:

  • To share information and ideas and to teach skills that the awardee can pass along to his or her colleagues at their home institutions.
  • To establish communication and collaborative relationships between the mentor and mentee and their respective institutions.
