The ASCO Leadership Development Program for the Asia-Pacific region (LDP-AP) teaches culturally-relevant skills in leadership, advocacy, communication, presentation skills, media skills, and conflict management. Participants will be selected based on their commitment to improving cancer care and potential for leadership. At the conclusion of the program, participants will be better able to lead successful advocacy efforts, to build relationships with leaders within their countries, and to lead within their own societies, institutions, and ASCO.
Program Objective – Bring together a diverse pan-Asian interdisciplinary group of emerging leaders in oncology who are empowered to identify and fill leadership roles in oncology, to engage in advocacy efforts, and to promote interdisciplinary collaboration across the region and within ASCO.
Program Highlights Participants will learn skills through both virtual and in-person sessions. They will participate actively in small group discussions, small group projects, and a 2-3 day in person workshop.
