What is expected from you as a YROG member?
A YROG member is expected to participate in at least one ROG meeting per year. Please note that it is an unfunded position. However, for YROGs, the registration fee for the ROG meetings will be waived (not meals or travelling expenses).
YROG members are encouraged to give a short presentation during the YROG session and/or at the plenary session about a topic that was decided prior to the meeting. Possible topics can be research proposals, research done by YROG members, new treatment approaches, new technologies, translational research dedicated to radiotherapy, including high quality review and meta-analysis based on the previous 6 months publications in the chosen field.
The YROGs are invited to take part in the discussions held at the different ROG working parties and to take part in the work done in various Disease Oriented Groups (DOGs) within the EORTC.
What will you gain by joining the YROG?
It is the best school to learn about clinical trials, key clinical questions, and a great opportunity to be involved in research and to work side by side with world-leaders in oncology and biostatistics. Participating in the YROG sessions is a platform to present your research and to be noticed in the European arena. Clinical trials are a life-long commitment and take a long time to complete; it is never too “early” in your carrier to start learning and working with the best researches aiming at giving our patients the best treatment.
